Subject[PATCH v3 1/1] remoteproc: add support for co-processor loaded and booted before kernel
Date
Remote processor could boot independently or be loaded/started before
Linux kernel by bootloader or any firmware.
This patch introduces a new property in rproc core, named skip_fw_load,
to be able to allocate resources and sub-devices like vdev and to
synchronize with current state without loading firmware from file system.
It is platform driver responsibility to implement the right firmware
load ops according to HW specificities.

Signed-off-by: Loic Pallardy <loic.pallardy@st.com>

---
Change from v2:
- rename property into skip_fw_load
- update rproc_boot and rproc_fw_boot description
- update commit message
Change from v1:
- Keep bool in struct rproc
