Subject[RFC PATCH v3 0/8] scpi: Add SCPI registry to handle legacy protocol
This patchset aims to support the legacy SCPI firmware implementation that was
delivered as early technology preview for the JUNO platform.

Finally a stable, maintained and public implementation for the SCPI protocol
has been upstreamed part of the JUNO support and it is the recommended way
of implementing SCP communication on ARMv8 platforms.

The Amlogic GXBB platform is using this legacy protocol, as the RK3368 & RK3399
platforms. Only the GXBB example is provided here, but it's unclear if other
Amlogic ARMv8 based SoCs uses this legacy procotol.

In order to support the legacy protocol :
- Move the scpi_get_ops to a thin registry layer
- Change the arm_scpi.c to use the registry layer
- Add a separate config option to build the registry layer
- Add the legacy SCPI driver based on the new implementation
- For example, add the Amlogic GXBB MHU and SCPI DT cpufreq & sensors nodes

Changes since RFC v2 at :
- Moved MHU to a separate patchset posted at
- Added a vendor send_message callback into scpi_ops to implement vendor commands
- Implement EXT commands on arm scpi as vendor send_command
- Added Rockchip variant mailbox handling

Initial RFC discution tread can be found at

@Sudeep: I know you wished I merged the legacy into the arm_scpi, but can you take a look at the vendor extension and how I implemented the rockchip mailbox handling ?

Neil Armstrong (8):
