SubjectRe: [PATCH v5 8/8] firmware: arm_scpi: Support unidirectional mailbox channels

I need to look at the bindings again, but I think you must update it.

I think mbox_free_channel handles !chan->cl, so just do unconditionally.

So, for this platform, this is required and must fail if it is not found.
But instead your check here is optional and may end up populating 2
scpi channels instead of one. I would suggest to make it required and
fail for it based on some compatible, otherwise you are not checking
correctly.

Something like:
if (of_match_device(blah_blah_of_match, &pdev->dev)) {
use_mbox_names = true;
count = 1;
}

Ah, OK then you must update the binding as it's different usage of mailbox.

General query, not related to this patch: If you are in process of
implementing the firmware, I suggest to move to SCMI protocol than this
one if not too late. This specification is deprecated and no longer
updated while SCMI is actively developed and maintained. However it has
slightly different notion of tx and rx and the way the specification
commands which messages are synchronous and which can be async/delayed.
