> This struct is also used to hold CAPP specific variables such as
> pointer to the 'struct phb' to which the CAPP is attached,
> 'capp_xscom_offset' which is the xscom offset to be added to CAPP
> registers in case there are more than 1 on the chip, 'capp_index'
> which is the index of the CAPP on the chip, and attached_pe' which is
> the process endpoint index to which CAPP is attached. Finally member
> 'chip_id' holds the chip-id thats used for performing xscom
> read/writes.
> Also new helpers named capp_xscom_read()/write() are introduced to
> make access to CAPP xscom registers easier.
