Are you looking at elf file with e-size? In my case it's bigger than *.srec
file that actually gets loaded on core. My suggestion is that you take look
at *.srec file contents (
and see what locations in local memory are used.
For bcrypt with e-size I get:
   text          data        bss        dec          hex    filename
  13114       6496        304      19914       4dca

When I examine parallella_e_bcrypt,srec, addresses up to 0x37F0 in local
memory are used. After that shared buffer is initialized to zero (from
address 0x8F000000).
