One two-port memory

If you are using the 2 port memory, you only need to instantiate 1 memory component in your data path. You then instantiate that component with the data signals and address signals for the instruction and data memories. If you go this route, you only need one initialization file and one dump file for the memory.

One potentially good reason to go this route is that the 2 port memory will synthesize when you get to that. The only downside is I think it introduces a bit more complexity in this project.

Do note that the format of the initialization file is different than the memory modules I wrote.
