Subject[PATCH v4 00/10] Allwinner sunxi 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 AR100 CPU, or to use the mailbox to forward NMIs that the
firmware picks up from R_INTC.

Unfortunately, the ARM SCPI client no longer works with this driver
since it now exposes all 8 hardware FIFOs individually. The SCPI client
could be made to work (and I posted proof-of-concept code to that effect
with v1 of this series), but that is a low priority, as Linux does not
directly use SCPI with the current firmware version; all SCPI use goes
through ATF via PSCI.

As requested in the comments to v3 of this patchset, a demo client is
provided in the final patch. This demo goes along with a toy firmware
which shows that the driver does indeed work for two-way communication
on all channels. To build the firmware component, run:

git clone meta
git clone -b mailbox-demo meta/crust
cd meta

That will by default produce a U-Boot + ATF + SCP firmware image in
[meta/]build/pinebook/u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin. See the top-level for more information, such as cross-compiler setup.

I've now used this driver with three separate clients over the past two
years, and they all work. If there are no remaining concerns with the
driver, I'd like it to get merged.

Even without the driver, the clock patches (1-2) can go in at any time.

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
