[PATCH v5 01/19] dt-bindings: remoteproc: Add bindind to support autonomous processors

This patch adds a binding to guide the remoteproc core on how to deal with
remote processors in two cases:

1) When an application holding a reference to a remote processor character
   device interface crashes.

2) when the platform driver for a remote processor is removed.

In both cases if "autonomous-on-core-reboot" is specified in the remote
processor DT node, the remoteproc core will detach the remote processor
rather than switching it off.

+      When specified the ancillary processor should be left operational when
