OK I understand.

Nevertheless I think that you may need to call .prepare() from
rproc_fw_boot() since you may need to access some memories from the
point rproc_handle_resources() is called (this sets up virtio which is
used if you have a resource table defining vdev).

And rproc_fw_boot() calls rproc_enable_iommu(), which sounds like
"prepare memory", so this may be the right place to call .prepare()
