No. Actually it is an inbox assigned to one of the remote cores before but
being exposed to host cpu core for now.

Exactly same with any other channel.
But only the part of outbox is exposed to host side. Inbox part of this channel
is still kept for original remote core to use.

It's a trick (un-documented) from our ASIC designers to resolve some special requirements.
I was also shocked when hearing it :)

I guess other vendors will add another mailbox module to resovle this, but our guys might
consider the hardware cost...

I thought it will help to increase perfermance of isr execution before.

Will fix at next.
