So I presume there's a hole here.

Your ELF header states that there is a segment of 0x48a0 bytes starting
at 0x1fffbf5c, but your iram ends after 0x40a3 bytes. I assume your
MemSiz comes from some linker script, which would mean that your
firmware expects to be able to use all 0x48a0 bytes, which should be

The fact that MemSiz is larger than FileSiz makes sense because you have
.bss, .heap and .stack there - which we conveniently clear for you.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but I think the problem is that your
memory map is broken. We do want to clear out the remaining part of each

Note though that we don't yet have means to direct your carveout
allocations to the two segments and get the firmware loaded at the
physical addresses specified.
