    1515First there are two types of memory: RTEMS Workspace and Program Heap.
     16The RTEMS Workspace is the memory used by RTEMS to allocate control
     17structures for system objects like tasks and semaphores, task
     18stacks, and some system data structures like the ready chains.
     19The Program Heap is where "malloc'ed" memory comes from.
