Per patch 4 this function will if rproc_needs_syncing() be called with
fw == NULL, it's not obvious to me that the various operations on "fw"
in this function are valid anymore.

Can't we make this check on fw, to make the relationship "if we where
passed a firmware object, we're going to load and boot that firmware"?
