ARM SCMI updates for v5.13
The major and big addition this time is to support modularisation of
individual SCMI protocols thus enabling to add support for vendors'
custom SCMI protocol. This changes the interface provided by the SCMI
driver to all the users of SCMI and hence involved changes in various
other subsystem SCMI drivers. The change has been split with a bit of
transient code to preserve bisectability and avoiding one big patch bomb
changing all the users.
This also includes SCMI IIO driver(pulled from IIO tree) and support for
firmware: arm_scmi: Add dynamic scmi devices creation
Having added the support for SCMI protocols as modules in order to let
vendors extend the SCMI core with their own additions it seems odd to
then force SCMI drivers built on top to use a static device table to
declare their devices since this way any new SCMI drivers addition
would need the core SCMI device table to be updated too.
Remove the static core device table and let SCMI drivers to simply declare
which device/protocol pair they need at initialization time: the core will
then take care to generate such devices dynamically during platform
initialization or at module loading time, as long as the requested
underlying protocol is defined in the devicetree.
