Simple: that isn't the interface of dcache_xfer_memory. It should
fill the cache. Trace it down to dcache_read_line.
Well that's what it does.
The "until" command tries to read beyond the top of stack,
which is fine for the running process and fine for the core
file, but for some reason in this instance wants to go into
dcache, where nothing currently should be cached.
Beyond the *top*? And there's something mapped there?
Arr, you know, "top" as in "TOS", as in the next location
that would be used if you pushed something.
Anyway, yes, that's what it does. dcache returns zero,
and memory_xfer_partial bails out instead of trying the
next target down the target stack.
