SubjectRE: [Uclinux-dist-devel] [uClinux-dev] [PATCH/RFC] FDPIC: add hook for arches to customize program header parsing
No. The sram device can not be accessed by any user space application.
The applications can only do malloc/free via system call.

Our GDB is still lack of the feature to debug applications using SRAM.
So this part of code was not got exercised. So if we remove this line,
can this patch got merged?
