Subject[PATCH v2 11/16] dmaengine: bcm-sba-raid: Peek mbox when we have no free requests
Date
When setting up RAID array on several NVMe disks we observed that
sba_alloc_request() start failing (due to no free requests left)
and RAID array setup becomes very slow.

To improve performance, we do mbox channel peek when we have
no free requests. This improves performance of RAID array setup
because mbox requests that were completed but not processed by
mbox completion worker will be processed immediately by mbox
channel peek.
