Patch 3 use those functions to apply the default configuration before probing
a driver (or after unbind it). I have in mind that drivers could ask to apply
a configuration like it is done for pinctrl in resume/suspend functions.
An example of that could be to start the hardware block on the main processor
and, when going to sleep, change the configuration to grant the access to lower
power processor.

I think that talking to a remote processor is another problem already addressed
remoteproc or secure monitor calls. Domains controllers drivers should be created
for those cases.
