On secure devices which support warm reset, the MBA firmware requires
access to the modem region to clear them out. Hence provide Q6 access
to this region before MBA boot. This will be a nop during a modem SSR.

Does it need a Fixes: tag? Probably.

it doesn't really fix anything previously
committed. When SC7180 support was added,
mss driver still lacked secure boot support
and when Bjorn added secure boot support,
none of the secure devices necessarily
supported warm reset. So I'll skip adding
fixes tag.
