    SMM: Add heap region and move C handler higher in region
    In order to support SPI and ELOG drivers the SMM region
    needs to be able to be larger than the previous allocation
    below 0x7400.  Now that we have support for 4M TSEG we do
    not need to live in this region.
    This change adds a 16KB heap region abofe the save state area
    at TSEG+64KB and moves the C handler above this.
    The heap region is then available for malloc and the C handler
    can grow to support flash and event log features.
    While updating the memory map comment in assembly stub I also
    added a pause instruction to the cpu spin lock as this was
    added to the C code in latest upstream rebase.
    Dump sympbols from smm.elf binary to see the new regions:
    00010000 B _heap
    00014000 B _eheap
    00014000 T _smm_c_handler_start
    0001b240 T _smm_c_handler_end
