This patch set is an implementation of BCM2835 mailbox support built on 
top of the framework implemented by by Suman Ana and Jassi Brar.  It is 
also meant to be a validation of the framework against another platform.

In order to be an effective test, the patch set also includes a mailbox 
client - a driver for the built-in CPU thermal sensor, which gets 
readings via a mailbox request and reply.

Both the mailbox driver [PATCH 2/3] and the thermal driver [PATCH 3/3] 
should be complete.  However, [PATCH 1/3] is not a formal part of this 
submission. It is only included to simplify testing of patches 2 and 3. 
This is why this patch set is only RFC; it cannot really proceed further 
until without the generic mailbox support.
