Subject[PATCH] mailbox: always wait in mbox_send_message for blocking tx mode
There exists a race when msg_submit return immediately as there was an
active request being processed which may have completed just before it's
checked again in mbox_send_message. This will result in return to the
caller without waiting in mbox_send_message even when it's blocking Tx.

This patch fixes the issue by making use of non-negative token returned
by add_to_rbuf to check if the request was queued and block always if
so in blocking Tx mode.

Fixes: 2b6d83e2b8b7 ("mailbox: Introduce framework for mailbox")
