[PATCH] remoteproc: report error if resource table doesn't exist

From: Stefan Agner
Date: Fri Aug 28 2015 - 21:08:30 EST

Currently, if the resource table is completely missing in the
firmware, powering up the remoteproc fails silently. Add a message
indicating that the resource table is missing in the firmware.

Hi Ohad,

I am currently working on remoteproc support for Freescale Vybrid's
secondary Cortex-M4 core. I stumbled upon this rough spot since the
little test firmware I am using now does not have a resource table

This also opens up a more general question: Is it mandatory to have
a resource table in the firmware? Theoretically a remoteproc could
also work completely independent, all what would be used from the
remoteproc framework is the loading and starting capabilities...
