The idea to introduce the rproc_mem is to let the remote to specify
the shared memory.
I am trying to see if there is a way to specify this software attribute without
touching the device tree as it doesn't look like it is hardware related.
And try to see if there is a way that when I change the firmware, i
don't need to change the device tree.
