[PATCH v4 1/2] dt-bindings: arm: Add optional interrupt to smc/hvc SCMI transport

In normal use of smc/hvc transport in SCMI the message completion is
indicated by the return of the SMC call.  This commit provides for an
optional interrupt named "a2p" which is used instead to
indicate the completion of a message.
