Subject[RFT PATCH v2 00/10] drivers: qcom: rpmh-rsc: Cleanup / add lots of comments
In order to review Maulik's latest "rpmh_flush for non OSI targets"
patch series I've found myself trying to understand rpmh-rsc better.
To make it easier for others to do this in the future, add a whole lot
of comments / documentation.

As part of this there are a very small number of functional changes.
- We'll get a tiny performance boost by getting rid of the "cmd_cache"
which I believe was unnecessary (though just to be sure, best to try
this atop Maulik's patches where it should be super obvious that we
always invalidate before writing sleep/wake TCSs.
- I think I've eliminated a possible deadlock on "nosmp" systems,
though it was mostly theoretical.
- Possibly we could get a warning in some cases if I misunderstood how
tcs_is_free() works. It'd be easy to remove the warning, though.

These changes touch a lot of code in rpmh-rsc, so hopefully someone at
Qualcomm can test them out better than I did (I don't have every last
client of RPMH in my tree) and review them soon-ish so they can land
and future patches can be based on them.

I've tried to structure the patches so that simpler / less
controversial patches are first. Those could certainly land on their
own without later patches. Many of the patches could also be dropped
and the others would still apply if they are controversial. If you
need help doing this then please yell.

At the end of this patch series there is still one TODO left in the
code. Specifically I think we still have some problems when we try to
borrow a wakeup TCS for an active-only transfer. The problems I think
are there aren't new, just the comment. It's unclear if we should
land with the TODO in place or wait till that gets resolved first.

With all that, enjoy.

Changes in v2:
- Now prose in comments instead of struct definitions.
- Pretty ASCII art from Stephen.
- More clear that active-only xfers can happen on wake TCS sometimes.
- Document locks for updating "tcs_in_use" more.
- Document tcs_is_free() without drv->lock OK for tcs_invalidate().
- Document bug of tcs_write() not handling -EAGAIN.
- Document get_tcs_for_msg() => -EAGAIN only for ACTIVE_ONLY.
- Reword tcs_write() doc a bit.
- Document two get_tcs_for_msg() issues if zero-active TCS.
- Document that rpmh_rsc_send_data() can be an implicit invalidate.
- Fixed documentation of "tcs" param in find_slots().
- Comment tcs_is_free() new for v2; replaces old patch 6.
- Got rid of useless "if (x) continue" at end of for loop.
- ("Always use -EAGAIN, never -EBUSY") new for v2.
