The Messaging Unit module enables two processors within
the SoC to communicate and coordinate by passing messages
(e.g. data, status and control) through the MU interface.

+NXP i.MX Messaging Unit (MU)
+--------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+The Messaging Unit module enables two processors within the SoC to
+communicate and coordinate by passing messages (e.g. data, status
+and control) through the MU interface. The MU also provides the ability
+for one processor to signal the other processor using interrupts.
+
+Because the MU manages the messaging between processors, the MU uses
+different clocks (from each side of the different peripheral buses).
+Therefore, the MU must synchronize the accesses from one side to the
+other. The MU accomplishes synchronization using two sets of matching
+registers (Processor A-facing, Processor B-facing).
+
+Messaging Unit Device Node:
+=============================
+
+Required properties:
+-------------------
+- compatible :	should be "fsl,<chip>-mu", the supported chips include
+		imx8qxp, imx8qm.
+- reg :		Should contain the registers location and length
+- interrupts :	Interrupt number. The interrupt specifier format depends
+		on the interrupt controller parent.
+- #mbox-cells:  Must be 0. Number of cells in a mailbox
+
+Examples:
+--------
+lsio_mu0: mailbox@5d1b0000 {
+	compatible = "fsl,imx8qxp-mu";
+	reg = <0x0 0x5d1b0000 0x0 0x10000>;
+	interrupts = <GIC_SPI 176 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
+	#mbox-cells = <0>;
+};
