The WkupM3 executes its code entirely from this internal RAM.

We don't have any carveouts or usage of any external DDR, as this
processor is used during Power Management, like cpuidle or suspend path,
and is used to control the MPU and DDR states. The resource table is
very simple and straight-forward [1]. We used to have RSC_INTMEM as part
of the resource table in the previous version, but we removed them since
that approach was NACKed.
