Read uCode from memory has better performance than from flash.
But it needs extra effort to let BSP copy uCode from flash to
memory. Also BSP already enable cache in SEC phase, so it use
less time to relocate uCode from flash to memory. After
verification, if system has more than one processor, it will
reduce some time if load uCode from memory.

This change enable this optimization.
