Subject: [PATCH] remoteproc: Drop wait in __rproc_boot()

In the event that rproc_boot() is called before the firmware loaded
completion has been flagged it will wait with the mutex held,
obstructing the request_firmware_nowait() callback from completing the
wait.

As rproc_fw_config_virtio() has been reduced to only triggering
auto-boot there is no longer a reason for waiting in rproc_boot(), so
drop this.

A separate patch should be written that drops firmware_loading_complete, but
this requires handling the case where rproc_del() is called before
request_firmware_nowait() finishes.
