Description Luis Machado 2023-07-27 11:57:49 UTC
This PR tracks the progress of the AArch64 gdb SME1 and SME2 support patch series, with the goal of having these changes pushed in time for GDB 14.

There are a couple series in flight at the moment:

- SME1:https://inbox.sourceware.org/gdb-patches/20230630134616.1238105-1-luis.machado@arm.com/T/#t

- SME2:https://inbox.sourceware.org/gdb-patches/20230630134844.1238445-1-luis.machado@arm.com/T/#t

The SME1 series had its documentation reviewed and a few comments on the rest of the patches.

The SME2 series has received documentation reviews, but no reviews on the rest of the patches so far.

Updates on these series will be posted to this ticket.

Comment 5 Luis Machado 2023-09-21 10:51:50 UTC
sme1 on v7, pending some discussions about:

* [PATCH v7 15/18] [gdb/generic] corefile/bug: Add hook to control the use of target description notes from corefiles

sme2 on v5. Seems good for pushing.
