Currently, this local RAM is not accessible from the CPU.
If the CPU tries to access it, then the CPU will hang.

Remoteproc may try to use it when it load a firmware
that has some sections in the local RAM.
This workarounds the issue by skiping this section.

We can't selectively decide to not load sections of a program due to a platform
driver shortcoming.  Either a real solution is found or booting the remote
processor is interrupted, with a strong incline toward the former.

I guess you're dealing with tightly coupled memory or on-chip RAM areas -
both are accessed on other platform using ioremap_wc() or devm_ioremap_wc().
You might want to try doing what Suman has done in this patchset [1], with
specific attention to TCMs and SRAM.

Thanks,
Mathieu
