With
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-remoteproc/CAHk-=wgea9bo-j4+LAvZF7OKPAXKqrGgiBAhXTJ3Jv5JAZgA+A@mail.gmail.com/
and
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-arm-msm/1609958656-15064-1-git-send-email-hemantk@codeaurora.org/
in mind, I would like some concrete examples of when and how this is
going to be used.


Also, as I said previously, this would have been better to put together
with the split out of rpmsg_ctrl, because afaict this is the only reason
for doing that. Or am I simply missing something?

So, does this imply that in order to spawn a new rpmsg_char from the
host side, I would use RPMSG_CREATE_DEV_IOCTL and to open a channel
announced by the remote I would use RPMSG_CREATE_EPT_IOCTL?

Is this a side effect, bug or a feature?
