I came across a panic in the complete function. When i traced bact the
call sequence it was
When a client sets chan->cl->tx_block = true, and polling is enabled
for controller.
1.Client sends the message with mbox_send_message. This function as
seen above will call __msg_submit (this calls the controller specific
send function).
2. Since the tx method is polling the above condition is satisfied and
calls the poll_txdone function.
3. In this poll function, the tx_tick function is invoked.
4. In this tick function since the client has enabled the tx_block it
calls the notify function complete(&chan->tx_complete);
5. Here there is a panic. because the complete is called before
initialization. init_completion needs to be called but not called.
