After recheck the SCMI 2.0 spec,

Shared memory area:
This is an area of memory that is shared between the caller and the callee.
At any point in time, the shared memory is owned by the caller or the callee.
The ownership is reflected by a channel status word in the shared memory area.

For TX shared memory, it not explains who should initialize the channel status,
callee or the caller.

In my case, I not let firmware initialize the shared memory, so it might contain
garbage data and not able to wait channel free.

So I think add a check of tx and set channel to free when scmi driver probe
, this is valid.

Or update spec to explicitly show who should initialize channel?

Thanks,
Peng.
