This patchwork is not fixing the issue and changing MSA mapping sequence 
is major design change.
This issue is only seen with DB845 which uses SCM call, newer targets 
QCS404/SC7180/SM8150 will not have this issue as MSA mapping is 
hard-coded in TZ.
Probably changes in qmi layer to give different indication for this 
scenario and changes in FW is required to mitigate this issue
