[PATCH] mailbox/bcm2835: Fix mailbox full detection.

From: Eric Anholt
Date: Wed May 13 2015 - 16:10:39 EST

With the VC reader blocked and the ARM writing, MAIL0_STA reads empty
permanently while MAIL1_STA goes from empty (0x40000000) to non-empty
(0x00000001-0x00000007) to full (0x80000008).

This bug ended up having no effect on us, because all of our
transactions in the client driver were synchronous and under a mutex.

This is a port of a patch by Noralf from the downstream Raspberry Pi
tree. Noralf said he didn't want attribution on this patch, even if
it looks a lot like his.
