Subject[RFC 00/18] remoteproc: Decorelate virtio from core
This series proposes to introduce the notion of platform device for the
rproc virtio management. One obective is to allow virtio to declare is
own memory resources without the usage of dma_declare_coherent_memory
that seems deprecated since the introduction of the device tree.

- the rproc virtio is processed in a separate platform and could be handled
as a generic platform device.
- Several vdev devices can be declared in DT:
- which allows to declare their own memory regions and answer to [1].
- as next steps it would be also possible to:
- declare their own mailboxes, rpmsg drivers, ...
- use dma-range to handle the pa<->da translation at virtio level

Several notions are introduced here:
- Virtio platform registration which allows to decorelate virtio from the
remote proc core device.
- Synchronization of the child devices relying on component bind/unbind.
This mechanism ensures the synchronization of the child devices before
the boot of the remote processor and before the release of the resources
on the remote processor shutdown.
- Ability to populate child devices declared in rproc device tree node.
- Possibility to declare the memory regions reserved to a virtio devices in
the devicetree.

Known limitations:
- the patchset has been tested on a st32mP1 plaform only
- it is based on the v5.6 (need to evoluate depending on V5.7 and on going
- The virtio memory allocation does not take into account memory
controllers such as IOMMU and MPU.

remoteproc: Add component in core for child devices synchronization
remoteproc: Add component bind/unbind for virtio platform
remoteproc: Externalize carveout functions
remoteproc: Move vring management from core to virtio
remoteproc: Add capability to populate rproc subnode devices
remoteproc: Add child node component in rproc match list
