Right, in this case don't expect the re-attach to work properly because function
stm32_rproc_detach() does not exist.  As such the M4 doesn't put itself back
in "wait-for-attach" mode as it does when booted by the boot loader.  If I
remember correctly we talked about that during an earlier conversation and we
agreed FW support would be needed to properly test the re-attach.

In light of the above let me know if these two issues are still relevant.  If
so I'll investigate further.

Thanks,
