Subject: [PATCH 1/1] remoteproc: fix recovery procedure

Commit 7e83cab824a87e83cab824a8 ("remoteproc: Modify recovery path
to use rproc_{start,stop}()") replaces rproc_{shutdown,boot}() with
rproc_{stop,start}(), which skips destroy the virtio device at stop
but re-initializes it again at start.

Issue is that struct virtio_dev is not correctly reinitialized like done
at initial allocation thanks to kzalloc() and kobject is considered as
already initialized by kernel. That is due to the fact struct virtio_dev
is allocated and released at vdev resource handling level managed and
virtio device is registered and unregistered at rproc subdevices level.

This patch initializes struct virtio_dev to 0 before using it and
registering it.

Fixes: 7e83cab824a8 ("remoteproc: Modify recovery path to use rproc_{start,stop}()")
