The SCMI (and SCPI) code is broken, that is, unless the firmware/SM is
trained to ignore the random value (pointer to a structure) passed via
R1. Which may be possible to do, but is surely a sign of poor
implementation. And may not be possible if some protocol other than
SCMI runs in parallel.

Andre, your take please?

Thanks.
