This is hexagon dsp, remoteproc node represents this.

Currently the dsp nodes are remoteproc nodes itself, all the services
that dsp provides are child nodes of this.

Ex: Audio DSP nodes looks like this:

adsp-pil { /* remoteproc device */
compatible = "qcom,msm8996-adsp-pil";
...
smd-edge { /* rpmsg device */
...
fastrpc { /* platform device */
compatible = "qcom,fastrpc";
};
};
};

This is to identify which type of dsp(Audio/Modem/Sensor/Compute) it is,
This information is used to create device nodes for user-space access.

Yes, its secured in TZ sense, this context requires secure buffers to
work with.

Yes!

A Session is a running instance on a compute context bank.

The value here indicates how many sessions can run simultaneously on
that compute context bank.

Currently the device model is via remoteproc bus followed by rpmsg bus
(communication channel) and then each compute context banks instance is
a platform device as children of the rpmsg channel device.


There are few practical issues though,

1> None of the parent buses (remoteproc/rpmsg) have ability to do a dma
allocations or associate there child devices with iommus.

2> Each compute bank has its own iommu stream id associated with it. How
can the parent bus associate this with each compute context bank
instance? Given that we have more than one compute context banks in each
dsp.
Are there any examples which already do this?

3> Are there already dt bindings which describe this parent bus handling
all the iommu stream ids of child devices?



Thanks,
