Re: [RFA] let record_resume fail immediately on error

Hi Joel,

I think explain is very hard to make you happy with this patch.  I am
really not good at it.  Sorry for it.

Could you please try the example?

For example:
cat 1.c
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <errno.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <stdint.h>

main(int argc,char *argv[],char *envp[])
       asm ("rdtsc");

       return (0);

Without the fix error patch:
we will get:
gdb ./a.out
(gdb) start
