I tried using polling in the mailbox framework. Some printing is done
from atomic context so it seems tx_block cannot be used -
wait_for_completion_timeout understandably does not work in atomic
context. I also tried without tx_block, in which case I got some
horribly garbled output, but "Try increasing MBOX_TX_QUEUE_LEN" was
readable there.

Any opinions?

Thanks,
Mikko
