Subject: [PATCH] remoteproc: Add module parameter 'auto_boot'
Date: Sun, 15 Nov 2020 11:50:56 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Until now the remoteproc core would always default to trying to boot the
remote processor at startup. The various remoteproc drivers could
however override that setting.

Whether or not we want the remote processor to boot, really depends on
the nature of the processor itself - a processor built into a WiFi chip
will need to be booted for the WiFi hardware to be usable, for instance,
but a general-purpose co-processor does not have any predeterminated
function, and as such we cannot assume that the OS will want the
processor to be booted - yet alone that we have a single do-it-all
firmware to load.

Add a 'auto_boot' module parameter that instructs the remoteproc whether
or not it should auto-boot the remote processor, which will default to
"true" to respect the previous behaviour.
