* Write to target memory using the virtual address.
* Note that this fn is used to implement software breakpoints. Targets
* can implement support for software breakpoints to memory marked as read
* only by making this fn write to ram even if it is read only(MMU or
* MPUs).
* It is sufficient to implement for writing a single word(16 or 32 in
* ARM32/16 bit case) to write the breakpoint to ram.
* The target should also take care of "other things" to make sure that
* software breakpoints can be written using this function. E.g.
* when there is a separate instruction and data cache, this fn must
* make sure that the instruction cache is synced up to the potential
* code change that can happen as a result of the memory write(typically
* by invalidating the cache).
* The high level wrapper fn in target.c will break down this memory write
* request to multiple write requests to the target driver to e.g. guarantee
* that writing 4 bytes to an aligned address happens with a single 32 bit
* write operation, thus making this fn suitable to e.g. write to special
* peripheral registers which do not support byte operations.
