Hi Kumar,
I looked into lib/genalloc allocator.
As far as I see, the genalloc allocator doesn't allow to control the memory alignment when you allocate a chunk of memory.
Two important notes regarding MURAM memory:
- The allocated memory chunks should have specific alignment (might be different in each chunk).
- The allocations must be efficient, we don't want to "waste" MURAM due to alignment issues.
