[PATCH v6 4/6] Arch-specific remote follow fork


Hi Pedro,

This version of this patch is unchanged except possibly for merges from
the mainline.  It was previously approved here:
https://sourceware.org/ml/gdb-patches/2015-02/msg00262.html

Thanks,
--Don

This patch implements the architecture-specific pieces of follow-fork
for remote and extended-remote Linux targets, which in the current
implementation copyies the parent's debug register state into the new
child's data structures.  This is required for x86, arm, aarch64, and
mips.

This follows the native implementation as closely as possible by
implementing a new linux_target_ops function 'new_fork', which is
analogous to 'linux_nat_new_fork' in linux-nat.c.  In gdbserver, the debug
registers are stored in the process list, instead of an
architecture-specific list, so the function arguments are process_info
pointers instead of an lwp_info and a pid as in the native implementation.

In the MIPS implementation the debug register mirror is stored differently
from x86, ARM, and aarch64, so instead of doing a simple structure assignment
I had to clone the list of watchpoint structures.

Tested using gdb.threads/watchpoint-fork.exp on x86, and ran manual tests
on a MIPS board and an ARM board.

I don't currently have access to an aarch64 board, so if someone is able
to test this easily, please do.
