[Buildroot] generating the map file

As far as I understand, map files (or memory map files) are a 
representation of the memory space of a single application

It makes sense to have a "complete memory map" when you have 
a single application running on your system (typically a microcontroler)

when you have a machine with a MMU i'm not sure it makes much 
sense... you can have a memory map for the kernel, a memory map for each
application, but i'm not sure what a memory map for the complete
buildroot build would be...

maybe if you use an initrd and have your whole FS in ram ? but even in
that case i'm not convinced that makes sense...
