Description Ulrich Weigand 2014-08-01 12:44:13 UTC
Enable GDB's fast and static tracepoint capabilities for the PowerPC target by implementing the required target-dependent gdbserver support for the in-process agent.

The goal is that the fast and static tracepoint tests in gdb.trace pass on powerpc64-linux.  Note that some of the tests will themselves require porting.

The fast tracepoint patches have landed.  Anything left to do here?
Comment 3 Ulrich Weigand 2016-03-31 14:34:07 UTC
Just as discussed in Bug #18377, static tracepoints don't work anywhere right now, so implementing fast tracepoints suffices for now.  Thanks for implementing this!
