Subject: [PATCH v3 01/15] dt-bindings: remoteproc: Add bindind to support autonomous processors

This patch adds a binding to guide the remoteproc core on how to deal with
remote processors in two cases:

1) When an application holding a reference to a remote processor character
   device interface crashes.

2) when the platform driver for a remote processor is removed.

In both cases if "autonomous-on-core-reboot" is specified in the remote
processor DT node, the remoteproc core will detach the remote processor
rather than switching it off.

+title: Binding for the remoteproc core applicable to all remote processors
+  - Bjorn Andersson <>
+  - Mathieu Poirier <>
+  This document defines the binding recognised by the remoteproc core that can
+  be used by any remote processor in the subsystem.
+  autonomous-on-core-reboot:
+    $ref: /schemas/types.yaml#/definitions/flag
+    description:
+      Used in two situations, i.e when a user space application releases the
+      handle it has on the remote processor's character driver interface and
+      when a remote processor's platform driver is being removed.  If defined,
+      this flag instructs the remoteproc core to detach the remote processor
+      rather than turning it off.
