Subject[PATCH v6] platform/chrome: cros_ec: Query EC protocol version if EC transitions between RO/RW
RO and RW of EC may have different EC protocol version. If EC transitions
between RO and RW, but AP does not reboot (this is true for fingerprint
microcontroller / cros_fp, but not true for main ec / cros_ec), the AP
still uses the protocol version queried before transition, which can
cause problems. In the case of fingerprint microcontroller, this causes
AP to send the wrong version of EC_CMD_GET_NEXT_EVENT to RO in the
interrupt handler, which in turn prevents RO to clear the interrupt
line to AP, in an infinite loop.

Once an EC_HOST_EVENT_INTERFACE_READY is received, we know that there
might have been a transition between RO and RW, so re-query the protocol.

The issue was those Samsung Chromebooks (Snow, Peach-Pit and Peach-Pi)
do not support mkbp events, yet we applied the same thing to them, which
we shouldn't. This v6 should fix it: I Just added a check

if (ec_dev->mkbp_event_supported)

in cros_ec_register().
