Yes I am aware of that and remoteproc sub-system will be used but only
for managing PRU cores (drivers/remoteproc/pru-rproc - will be
submitted soon), while this driver is the parent driver for the entire
PRUSS (used for managing the subsystem level resources like various
memories and the CFG module). This driver is also responsible for
populating all child devices (described in DT), managed by specific
(and separate) drivers: e.g.:
- PRU core will be managed by drivers/remoteproc/pru-rproc (will be
- PRU interrupt controller will be managed by
drivers/irqchip/irq-pruss-intc.c (it is already under review)
