I am not sure this will work. If we are not taking the channel lock, we don't 
have a good
way to synchronize with the mailbox framework while we are accessing the same 
data.

Why don't we just move out the devm_request_irq and devm_free_irq outside the
critical section? In pcc_mbox_request_channel, we can call devm_request_irq 
after
releasing the spin_lock and in pcc_mbox_free_channel we can call devm_free_irq 
and
then take the spin_lock to access the shared data.
