Description Andrew Cagney 2006-12-14 16:51:02 UTC
TestMemory, nee TestModify, is trying to test the PtraceByteBuffer.  It doesn't
need to.  Instead a very simple portable memory I/O test, that confirms that the
Proc's memory is correctly wired is required.

A lower level sys test should be checking the PtraceByteBuffer.

One possible example might be to look in the AUXV for a known address and then
read/modify that.

The main thing though is that this really should be ISA independant and simple.
Comment 2 Andrew Cagney 2008-03-11 13:57:20 UTC
Other tests, such as code inserting/removing breakpoints are testing memory I/O.
