Hi Ohad,
Yes tidspbridge and remoteproc must be adapted.
This new mailbox fw has been tested on TI environment by Omar, who did
adaptation at least for tidspbridge.

Omar, do you have patch series ready for TI adaptations to new mailbox
Else I can do it, but I won't be able to test it (no panda board)
