> We have a region for reading the contents of the NVM flash as a snapshot. This
> region does not allow reading the Shadow RAM, as it always passes the
> FLASH_ONLY bit to the low level firmware interface.
> Add a separate shadow-ram region which will allow snapshot of the current
> contents of the Shadow RAM. This data is built from the NVM contents but is
> distinct as the device builds up the Shadow RAM during initialization, so being
> able to snapshot its contents can be useful when attempting to debug flash
> related issues.
> Fix the comment description of the nvm-flash region which incorrectly stated
> that it filled the shadow-ram region, and add a comment explaining that the
> nvm-flash region does not actually read the Shadow RAM.
