This patch series adds support for the system controller on
the PolarFire SoC, using the mailbox framework. A Microchip directory
in the SoC subsystem has been created to hold the mailbox client
driver and will be used for future service drivers.

These drivers are gated by the kconfig option:
CONFIG_SOC_MICROCHIP_POLARFIRE, so this patch series depends on Atish
Patra's PolarFire SoC support patches which introduce it.

It further depends on the MAINTAINERS entry created in the same series.

The following link, which is a direct download of a pdf, contains documentation
for the system controller:

Changes from v5:
* removed excess functions, cleanup in mailbox-mpfs.c

Changes from v4:
* Changed dt binding from Rob Herring's feedback
* Shortened some verbose variable names
* Reordered binding patches
* Write directly into response array, rather than allocate in controller isr and memcpy in client

Changes from v3:
* Fixed mboxes reference in dt binding for mailbox client
* Bug fixes and cleanup from Jonathan Neuschäfer's feedback on
  mailbox-mpfs.c & mpfs-sys-controller.c
* Renamed dt binding files to match compatible strings
* Removed PFSoC gating condition on drivers/soc/microchip subdirectory
* Converted all size based operations to bytes for consistency
* Converted response array to a structure, enabling support for more
  complex services that return a status instead of/alongside a payload.

Changes from v2:
* Further reworked dt bindings to satisfy errors and feedback
  (hopefully phandle array is the correct type for the mboxes)
* Full maintainers entry moved to Atish's PFSoC support series, this series now only adds mailbox driver
* Converted config options from MPFS to POLARFIRE_SOC so they are more recognisable
* Further simplified driver code from feedback

Changes from v1:
* Squashed header into first patch
* Fixed DT binding warnings & small fixes
* Cleaned up drivers from feedback
