By "registering" you mean calling rpmsg_virtio_add_ctrl_dev and
rpmsg_ns_register_device?

The rpmsg_ns_register_device has to be called before. Because it has to be
probed to handle the first message coming from the remote side to create
associated rpmsg local device. It doesn't send message.

The risk could be for the rpmsg_ctrl device. Registering it
after the virtio_device_ready(vdev) call could make sense...

Please find some concerns about this inversion here:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20220701053813-mutt-send-email-mst@kernel.org/

Regarding __virtio_unbreak_device. The pending virtio_break_device is
used by some virtio driver.
Could we consider that it makes sense to also have a
virtio_unbreak_device interface?


I do not well understand the reason of the commit:
8b4ec69d7e09 ("virtio: harden vring IRQ", 2022-05-27)
So following alternative is probably pretty naive:
Is the use of virtqueue_disable_cb could be an alternative to the
vq->broken usage allowing to register buffer while preventing virtqueue IRQ?

Thanks,
Arnaud
