TrustZone support for Contiki-NG upstreamed

19045 STACK
New library

TrustZone support was added for the Contiki-NG open-source operating system for the Internet of Things. The TrustZone support includes a port to the nRF5340 platform. This opens up for development of more cyber-secure IoT applications using Contiki-NG. Contiki-NG is unique in that it is one of the smallest (in terms of resource needs) OSes for IoT and is well-suited for low-power IoT applications and products.
