Subject: [PATCH v2 3/5] remoteproc: pru: Deny rproc sysfs ops for PRU client driven boots

From: Suman Anna <>

The PRU remoteproc driver is not configured for 'auto-boot' by default,
and allows to be booted either by in-kernel PRU client drivers or by
userspace using the generic remoteproc sysfs interfaces. The sysfs
interfaces should not be permitted to change the remoteproc firmwares
or states when a PRU is being managed by an in-kernel client driver.
Use the newly introduced remoteproc generic 'deny_sysfs_ops' flag to
provide these restrictions by setting and clearing it appropriately
during the PRU acquire and release steps.
