The SCMI specification is fairly independent of the transport protocol,
which can be a simple mailbox (already implemented) or anything else.
The current Linux implementation however is very much dependent on the
mailbox transport layer.

This patch makes the SCMI core code (driver.c) independent of the
mailbox transport layer and moves all mailbox related code to a new
file: mailbox.c.

We can now implement more transport protocols to transport SCMI
messages.

The transport protocols just need to provide struct scmi_transport_ops,
with its version of the callbacks to enable exchange of SCMI messages.

@Sudeep: Please help getting this tested as well :)

V4->V5:
- struct scmi_shared_mem is moved to mailbox.c and it is completely
  handled by transport layer now.
- And so lots of ops change due to this.
- Fixed a bug from previous version where wrong dev structure was
  getting passed to devm_kzalloc().

V3->V4:
- Rebased on top of linux-next.

V2->V3:
- Added more ops to the structure to read/write/memcpy data
- Payload is moved to mailbox.c and is handled in transport specific way
  now. This resulted in lots of changes.

V1->V2:
- Dropped __iomem from payload data.
- Moved transport ops to scmi_desc, and that has a per transport
  instance now which is differentiated using the compatible string.
- Converted IS_ERR_OR_NULL to IS_ERR.

I did a quick test and it just works fine ;)

May be not needed anymore ? IIUC you had added it for offset and friends.

I prefer this moving of the above code to header as separate patch,
just to keep it easy for bisection in case we break anything with new
transport layer. There's nothing I see, but to be safer. You can also
claim no functionality change with that patch then ;)

I saw this and couple other doc changes that are not related to this patch
but are fixed to existing code ? Can be separate patch again if I am not
wrong.

Otherwise looks good. Since we are not adding module support, I am fine
even if we have to make changes to transport ops bit later if required
and realised when adding new transport. Let us see if Peter has any major
objections.

I have no objections. Looks good. One remark:

Maybe the mark_txdone, fetch_response, and poll_done ops should also get
a `u32 msg_hdr' parameter? I thought it could be required in case of
concurrent xfers, or maybe I don't understand the imposed concurrency
limitations properly.

Best regards,

Peter

I would like to avoid doing that unless we have some upstreamed
transport which is going to need it. The parameter won't be used by
mailbox.c for now and so better add it later only.
