Subject: [PATCH v4 00/17] remoteproc: Add support for detaching a rproc 

Following the work done here [1], this set provides support for the
remoteproc core to release resources associated with a remote processor
without having to switch it off. That way a platform driver can be removed
or the application processor power cycled while the remote processor is
still operating.

Of special interest in this series are patches 5 and 6 where getting the
address of the resource table installed by an eternal entity if moved to
the core.  This is to support scenarios where a remote process has been
booted by the core but is being detached.  To re-attach the remote
processor, the address of the resource table needs to be known at a later
time than the platform driver's probe() function.

Applies cleanly on v5.10



New for v4:
- Made binding description OS agnostic (Rob)
- Added functionality to set the external resource table in the core
- Fixed a crash when detaching (Arnaud)
- Fixed error code propagation in rproc_cdev_relase() and rproc_del() (Arnaud)
- Added RB tags
