Hi Hauke,

This firmware is used by all Intel / Lantiq MIPS SoCs when they should
support analog voice.

What is the proposed timeline for the removal of this interface?

Ultimately I guess that's Ralf's call, but when I've discussed this with him previously, he wasn't aware of any users of this feature. But if there are indeed active users then that will slow down it's removal to give them sufficient time to migrate or otherwise stop using it.

Thanks,
Matt

The MIPS remote processor driver (CONFIG_MIPS_RPROC) provides a more
standard mechanism for using one or more VPs as coprocessors running
separate firmware.

Here we deprecate this mechanism before it is removed.
