Marc Kleine-Budde - Jan. 24, 2011, 2:15 p.m.
Due to a chip bug (errata 50.2.6.3 & 50.3.5.3 in
"AT91SAM9263 Preliminary 6249H-ATARM-27-Jul-09") the contents of mailbox
0 may be send under certain conditions (even if disabled or in rx mode).

The workaround in the errata suggests not to use the mailbox and load it
with a unused identifier.

This patch implements the first part of the workaround, it updates
AT91_MB_RX_NUM and AT91_MB_RX_FIRST (and the inline documentation)
so that mailbox 0 stays unused.
