If all memory region are defined as carveout, in that case all allocations will be done before by rproc_handle_carveout
and here we just get access to the area thanks to the carveout name...

It is the same as for carveout. Agree to first lookup by name and then check requested resource parameters.
If no region found, in that case we rely on default dynamic allocation.

Yes good idea, if no name match on a registered carveout, rproc_alloc_vring can create one. Like that we are sure to have all the carveout handled at the same location, in the same way.
