This function determines whether the address provided lies in a platform's flash memory or RAM address range. Based on the results of this call, the OS image being downloaded might be destined for flash memory. In that case, it might need to be handled differently, for example, by providing a RAM-based file cache area to support downloading while a flash memory update takes place.
