Yeah, DSP node is enabled only for DA850 LCDK among the DT-supported
boards, but I believe there are boards still using legacy boot, and it
shows up on those platforms as well. FYI, we do not have any rpmsg
drivers other than the kernel sample to make real usage of a booted
remoteproc. Anycase, if you still prefer this to be added, I don't mind.
