In what scenario do you end up with a rpdev without ops defined?

You need at least create_ept defined in your ops to be able to do any
form of communication. So it would probably make more sense to add a
sanity check in rpmsg_register_device(), but perhaps I'm missing
something.


(If this is not true there are a bunch of other places where this needs
to be checked as well)
