Subject[PATCH v5 0/8] Allwinner sun6i message box support
This series adds support for the "hardware message box" in sun8i, sun9i,
and sun50i SoCs, used for communication with the ARISC management
processor (the platform's equivalent of the ARM SCP). The end goal is to
use the arm_scpi driver as a client, communicating with firmware running
on the ARISC CPU.

I have tested this driver with various firmware programs on the A64, H5,
and H6 SoCs (including specifically this arm_scpi patch on A64 and H6),
and Ondrej Jirman has tested the driver on the A83T (using a similar
patch to arm_scpi).

The change to make the arm_scpi compatible with unidirectional mailbox
controllers is attached to the end of this patch series. While it would
be nice to get this merged too, I don't consider it a prerequisite to
getting the driver merged. And even without the driver, the clock change
(patch #1) can go in at any time.


Changes from v4:
- Rebased on sunxi-next
- Dropped AR100 clock patch, as it was controversial and unnecessary
- Renamed sunxi-msgbox to sun6i-msgbox and sun6i-a31-msgbox
- Added comments about not asserting the reset line
- Dropped A80 DTS changes as they were untested
- Added Ondrej's Tested-by for A83T
- Dropped the demo; replaced with a real arm_scpi fix

Changes from v3:
- Rebased on sunxi-next
- Added Rob's Reviewed-by for patch 3
- Fixed a crash when receiving a message on a disabled channel
- Cleaned up some comments/formatting in the driver
- Fixed #mbox-cells in sunxi-h3-h5.dtsi (patch 7)
- Removed the irqchip example (no longer relevant to the fw design)
- Added a demo/example client that uses the driver and a toy firmware

Changes from v2:
- Merge patches 1-3
- Add a comment in the code explaining the CLK_IS_CRITICAL usage
- Add a patch to mark the AR100 clocks as critical
- Use YAML for the device tree binding
- Include a not-for-merge example usage of the mailbox

Changes from v1:
- Marked message box clocks as critical instead of hacks in the driver
- 8 unidirectional channels instead of 4 bidirectional pairs
- Use per-SoC compatible strings and an A31 fallback compatible
- Dropped the mailbox framework patch
- Include DT patches for SoCs that document the message box
