In addition to the generic qcom,glink-rpm I presume?

This is equivalent to how we have done this on all previous platforms.
On previous platforms this generally maps to one of the "Krait Processor
SubSystem" blocks, so I'm quite worried with coming up with a compatible
for this block will not be compatible with any future description of
this block.

It represents one of the RAM modules of one of the other ARM cores in
the SoC, used for shared memory communication with this ARM core. So the
hardware is essentially mmio-sram. But it has none of the properties
that a mmio-sram seem to have.

The reason I did not put it in the rpm-glink node is that in previous
Qualcomm platforms we have exactly the same system design, but the data
structure of the RAM was different, so it felt natural to just keep the
same description of the hardware.
