Subject[RFC PATCH 2/2] imx: mailbox: Introduce TX doorbell with ACK
Date
From: Daniel Baluta <daniel.baluta@nxp.com>

TX doorbell with ACK will allow us to push the doorbell ring button
(trigger GIR) and also will allow us to handle the response from DSP.

DSP firmware found on i.MX8 boards implements a duplex
communication protocol over MU channels.

On the host side (Linux) we need to plugin into Sound Open Firmware IPC
communication infrastructure which handles all the details (e.g message
queuing, tx/rx logic) [1] and the users are only required to provide the
following callbacks:

- send_msg (for Tx)
- irq_handler (Ack of Tx, request from DSP)

In order to implement send_msg and irq_handler we will use two MU
channels:
* channel #0, TX doorbell with ACK
* channel #1, RX doorbell

Sending a request Host -> DSP (channel #0)
- send_msg callback
- write data into SHMEM
- push doorbell ring button (trigger GIR)
- irq handler
- handle DSP request (channel #1)
- read SHMEM and trigger SOF IPC state machine
- send ACK (push doorbell ring button for channel #1)
- handle DSP response (ACK) (channel #0)
- read SHMEM and trigger IPC state machine

The easisest way to implement this is to directly access the MU
registers but since the MU is abstracted using the mailbox interface
we need to use that instead.
