[PATCH] Mailbox: Complete wait event only if Tx was successful

From: Ashwin Chaugule
Date: Wed Dec 10 2014 - 15:16:36 EST

If a wait_for_completion_timeout() call returns due to a timeout,
the mbox code can still call complete() after returning from the wait.
This can cause subsequent transmissions on a channel to fail, since
the wait_for_completion_timeout() sees the completion variable
is !=0, caused by the erroneous complete() call, and immediately
returns without waiting for the time as expected by the client.

Fix this by calling complete() only if the TX was successful.
