On our platforms we have one channel/shared memory area/mailbox instance
for all standard SCMI protocols, and we have a separate channel/shared
memory area/mailbox driver instance for a proprietary one. They happen
to have difference throughput requirements, hence the split.

If I read Peng's submission correctly, it seems to me that the usage
model described before is still fine.
