I don't know if my memory serves me right but there was a discussion
a while back about the OMAP mailboxes and whether they needed a
subsystem on their own.
(I cannot find it now...)
Either the conclusion was "we should look into it sometime" or
"too little code to worry about".
I even have a vague memory of someone proposing drivers/mailbox
for OMAP once, but might not remember correctly.
Ohad/Tony probably knows...
Candidates would be:
Portions of: drivers/mfd/db8500-prcmu.c
+ some new code I think Sjur Brændeland have cooking for
