Memory types

All addresses in a system that are not marked as faulting are assigned a memory type. The memory type is a high-level description of how the processor should interact with the address region. There are two memory types in Armv8-A: Normal memory and Device memory.

Note: Armv6 and Armv7 include a third memory type: Strongly Ordered. In Armv8, this maps to Device_nGnRnE.
