I just posted a RFC patch-set on this to linux-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Review comments is welcomed :-)

I have run into one issue with the dynamically allocated notifyids. When
allocating multiple virtio devices, only ids for the first virtio
device is allocated
when the remote device is started. This is fails for me, because I need to know
all of the kick-ids before starting the remote device.

Do you have any preference on how to solve this, Ohad?

One idea could be to call rproc->start from a work-queue and wait for completion
of firmware loading before actually starting. In this way we will not
trigger start-up
of the remote device before all virtio devices and their kick-ids are allocated.
