There's been a request mentioned of it being possible to shut down Linux
and having the remote processor keep running.

By skipping the rest of shutdown we will not stop or unprepare
subdevices, so presumably the remote processor won't know that
virtio/rpmsg is down. Is that ok?

As asked on a previous patch, what would it mean if after_stop is true?

It seems like this state would be similar to the "already-booted" state
that we might encounter at probe time.
