I do like this patch and actually have a need for something similar for
supporting loading into internal memories for some R5F remote processors
on the latest TI SoCs. R5Fs have both resets and halt signals, and the
reset needs to be released to allow loading into TCMs, with the start
performing the halt. I am forced to do this between rproc_alloc() and
rproc_start() at the moment, but this really creates a mismatch between
my probe, start, stop and remove.

That said, I do agree with you that the way this was used with carveouts
should not have been used. Overloading the parse_fw to achieve above is
not right either. Please see my comments on Loic's v4 ST remoteproc
patch [1].
