   Are you describing two CPU types on one board, sharing memory, or one
   software product to be built for two distinct platforms?

   If the former, then it seems that you can share data memory, but not
   code. The problem then surely reduces to linker command script
   tweaking, to define the common area(s), and a few interlocks?

   Err..., you wouldn't be contemplating sharing lots of fine-grain
   symbols between the CPUs?
