Seems reasonable.
A last point. i don't know if the case is realistic so i prefer to mention it:
we can imagine that a rproc platform driver already manages a panic (for instance a video decoder driver that uses a coprocessor).
In this case there is a risk that the rproc is remove during the panic.
Depending on the panic sequence ordering this could generate a side effect (no delay as last rproc panic ops could be never called).
But seems not too tricky to take it into account in remoteproc core.

Thank you for that explanation!
