The API you proposed seems to me quite smart and adaptable to the rpmsg
virtio backend.

My main concern is about the release of the buffer when the endpoint
is destroyed.

Does the buffer release should be handled by each services or by the

I wonder if the buffer list could be managed by the core part by adding
the list in the rpmsg_endpoint structure. On destroy the core could call
the rx_done for each remaining buffers in list...

I let Bjorn and Mathieu advise on this...
