The current version is stupid as I misunderstood the whole __iomem
thing and just dropped it :)

Okay, I think I understand that a bit now. So here are the things
which I may need to do now:

- Maybe move payload to struct scmi_mailbox structure, as that is the
transport dependent structure..

- Do ioremap, etc in mailbox.c only instead of driver.c

- Provide more ops in struct scmi_transport_ops to provide read/write
helpers to the payload and implement the ones based on
ioread/iowrite in mailbox.c ..

Am I thinking in the right direction now ?
