    SLIMbus is MIPI alliance specification. Since word "bus" is part of the
    specification, I thought it will be good to keep it that way.

    The specification is available to all MIPI members.
    Some more info here:

    I was trying to give example of each type of both message. I will reword
    it to be more clear.

    I will reword this to say: "has following type of device classifications
    based on capabilities:".

    Typically there is 1 framer per bus, but if there are multiple framers
    then manager is responsible for doing handoff between framers.

    Please refer to slimbus.c for slimbus framework.

    Thank you for your comments. I will address all the comments in the next
    patch.
