Wouldn't that be a stretch to image the SCM register write or a random
register write as an interrupt controller? But I agree that it solves
the issue of determining whether we want to use SCM or regmap.

But, we would still need to add syscon to the mailbox and then regmap
the registers for the interrupt contoller.
