+OMAP2+ Mailbox Driver
+The OMAP mailbox hardware facilitates communication between different processors
+using a queued mailbox interrupt mechanism. The IP block is external to the
+various processor subsystems and is connected on an interconnect bus. The
+communication is achieved through a set of registers for message storage and
+interrupt configuration registers.
+Each mailbox IP block has a certain number of h/w fifo queues and output
+interrupt lines. An output interrupt line is routed to an interrupt controller
+within a processor subsystem, and there can be more than one line going to a
+specific processor's interrupt controller. The interrupt line connections are
+fixed for an instance and are dictated by the IP integration into the SoC
+(excluding the SoCs that have a Interrupt Crossbar IP). Each interrupt line is
+programmable through a set of interrupt configuration registers, and have a rx
+and tx interrupt source per h/w fifo. Communication between different processors
+is achieved through the appropriate programming of the rx and tx interrupt
+sources on the appropriate interrupt lines.
+The number of h/w fifo queues and interrupt lines dictate the usable registers.
+All the current OMAP SoCs except for the newest DRA7xx SoC has a single IP
+instance. DRA7xx has multiple instances with different number of h/w fifo queues
+and interrupt lines between different instances. The interrupt lines can also be
+routed to different processor sub-systems on DRA7xx as they are routed through
+the Crossbar, a kind of interrupt router/multiplexer.
+Mailbox Device Node:
+A Mailbox device node is used to represent a Mailbox IP instance within a SoC.
+The sub-mailboxes are represented as child nodes of this parent node.
+Required properties:
+- compatible:		Should be one of the following,
+			    "ti,omap2-mailbox" for OMAP2420, OMAP2430 SoCs
+			    "ti,omap3-mailbox" for OMAP3430, OMAP3630 SoCs
+			    "ti,omap4-mailbox" for OMAP44xx, OMAP54xx, AM33xx,
+						   AM43xx and DRA7xx SoCs
+- reg:			Contains the mailbox register address range (base
+			address and length)
+- interrupts:		Contains the interrupt information for the mailbox
+			device. The format is dependent on which interrupt
+			controller the OMAP device uses
+- ti,hwmods:		Name of the hwmod associated with the mailbox
+- ti,mbox-num-users:	Number of targets (processor devices) that the mailbox
+			device can interrupt
+- ti,mbox-num-fifos:	Number of h/w fifo queues within the mailbox IP block
+Child Nodes:
+A child node is used for representing the actual sub-mailbox device that is
+used for the communication between the host processor and a remote processor.
+Each child node should have a unique node name across all the different
+mailbox device nodes.
+Required properties:
+- ti,mbox-tx:		sub-mailbox descriptor property defining a Tx fifo
+- ti,mbox-rx:		sub-mailbox descriptor property defining a Rx fifo
+Sub-mailbox Descriptor Data
+Each of the above ti,mbox-tx and ti,mbox-rx properties should have 3 cells of
+data that represent the following:
+    Cell #1 (fifo_id) - mailbox fifo id used either for transmitting
+                        (ti,mbox-tx) or for receiving (ti,mbox-rx)
+    Cell #2 (irq_id)  - irq identifier index number to use from the parent's
+                        interrupts data. Should be 0 for most of the cases, a
+                        positive index value is seen only on mailboxes that have
+                        multiple interrupt lines connected to the MPU processor.
+    Cell #3 (usr_id)  - mailbox user id for identifying the interrupt line
+                        associated with generating a tx/rx fifo interrupt.
