Thanks for the patience and offer. Can we try the same with MHUv1 and SCMI
upstream driver.

The firmware just uses High Priority physical channel bit 0 and 2 as Tx
and bit 1 and 3 as Rx. Bit 2 and 3 are for perf which shouldn't get blocked
by bit 0 and 1. I mean I can have 10 requests covering clocks/sensors and
others on bit 0 and 1, but the bits 2 and 3 are dedicated for DVFS and
shouldn't be blocked because of other non DVFS requests.

The DT looks something like this(modified MHU binding for 2 cells)

mailbox: mhu@2b1f0000 {
compatible = "arm,primecell";
reg = <0x0 0x2b1f0000 0x0 0x1000>;
interrupts = <GIC_SPI 36 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>,
<GIC_SPI 35 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
interrupt-names = "mhu_lpri_rx",
"mhu_hpri_rx";
#mbox-cells = <2>;
mbox-name = "ARM-MHU";
clocks = <&soc_refclk100mhz>;
clock-names = "apb_pclk";
};
firmware {
scmi {
compatible = "arm,scmi";
mbox-names = "tx", "rx";
mboxes = <&mailbox 0 0 &mailbox 0 1>;
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <0>;

scmi_devpd: protocol@11 {
reg = <0x11>;
#power-domain-cells = <1>;
};

scmi_dvfs: protocol@13 {
reg = <0x13>;
#clock-cells = <1>;
mbox-names = "tx", "rx";
mboxes = <&mailbox 0 2 &mailbox 0 3>;
};

scmi_clk: protocol@14 {
reg = <0x14>;
#clock-cells = <1>;
};

scmi_sensors0: protocol@15 {
reg = <0x15>;
#thermal-sensor-cells = <1>;
};
};
};
