Are you thinking of passing name of the remote processor (like m3, dsp0,
dsp1 etc) in pdata->name? That sounds OK since the processor name is
actually tied to the platform. BTW, the current driver seems to be
written for OMAP-L138 rather tightly so you could as well hardcode the
firmware name to 'rproc-dsp-fw'.
