PRU firmware accessing DRAM of other PRU is a design contract and that use case
requires both PRUs to be loaded with matching firmware. That should continue to work.

What I'm suggesting here is that kernel remoteproc driver should have nothing to do
with the other PRU's data RAM.

The application driver if needs both PRUs then it can obviously access both DRAMs
as it has a phandle to both PRUs.
