Subject[PATCH v6 0/8] Updates to MHI channel handling
MHI specification shows a state machine with support for STOP channel command
and the validity of certain state transitions. MHI host currently does not
provide any mechanism to stop a channel and restart it without resetting it.
There are also times when the device moves on to a different execution
environment while client drivers on the host are unaware of it and still
attempt to reset the channels facing unnecessary timeouts.

This series addresses the above areas to provide support for stopping an MHI
channel, resuming it back, improved documentation and improving upon channel
state machine handling in general.

This set of patches was tested on arm64 architecture.

-Dropped the patch which introduced start/stop transfer APIs for lack of users
-Updated error handling and debug prints on channel handling improvements patch
-Improved commit text to better explain certain patches based on review comments
-Removed references to new APIs from the documentation improvement patch

-Added reviewed-by tags from Hemant I missed earlier
-Added patch to prevent kernel warnings on clearing channel context twice

-Updated commit text/descriptions and addressed checkpatch checks
-Added context validity check before starting/stopping channels from new API
-Added patch to clear channel context configuration after reset/unprepare

-Updated documentation for channel transfer APIs to highlight differences
-Create separate patch for "allowing channel to be disabled from stopped state"

-Renamed the newly introduced APIs to mhi_start_transfer() / mhi_stop_transfer()
-Added improved documentation to avoid confusion with the new APIs
-Removed the __ prefix from mhi_unprepare_channel() API for consistency.
