Can we instead make these ops dynamically assigned, without mandating
them in the low level driver ?

E.g. with ELF it's easy (first four bytes of the binary), but I'm not
sure how feasible it is with proprietary binary formats (such as
yours).

I'm not sure we need loaders' ops to be full-fledged modules of their
own. For simplicity, we might just have them statically linked with
the remoteproc module.

Might be easier on the eyes if we turn rproc_find_rsc_table() (and
friends) into static inline "macros" which does all this
de-referencing.

Thanks,
