    mei: drop amthif internal client · 394a77d0

    AMTHIF has special support in the mei drive, it handles multiplexing
    multiple user space connection above single me client connection.
    Since there is no additional addressing information there is a strict
    requirement on the traffic order on each connection and on the "read
    after write" order within the connection. This creates a lot of
    complexity mostly because the other client types do not necessarily fall
    under the same restriction.    After carefully studying the use of the
    AMTHIF client, we came to conclusion that the multiplexing is not really
    utilized by any application and we may safely remove that support and
    significantly simplify the driver.
