Subject[PATCHv3 2/6] mailbox: Introduce a new common API
Date
Introduce common framework for client/protocol drivers and
controller drivers of Inter-Processor-Communication (IPC).

Client driver developers should have a look at
include/linux/mailbox_client.h to understand the part of
the API exposed to client drivers.
Similarly controller driver developers should have a look
at include/linux/mailbox_controller.h
