Overall I think this looks really good now, but I spotted an issue with
INLINE dumps not using segment->dump().

Also there's 3 checkpatch --strict warnings, please fix those.

I think it would be best to maintain the same behavior between INLINE
and DEFAULT here.

This won't work for modem on e.g. SDM845, because we need to do some
special tricks to make the memory readable, that's why we invoke
segment->dump() in the DEFAULT scenario. Doing a memcpy here instead
will result in a security violation.

Perhaps this snippet can be extracted to a separate helper function,
which would allow you to avoid the next_seg goto label below.

Please prefix these with RPROC_, as "coredump" has a meaning outside
remoteproc as well.
