While we are talking: someone (H.J. Lu?) suggested to make the
watchpoint insertion code common to all x86 targets. What's the
current say-so on this?
It seems like a good idea to me. In particular, i386v-nat.c could use
some of the trickery, bug-fixes and features from go32-nat.c ;-).
For example, note that the function which removes non-aligned
watchpoints, doesn't go through the same routine as the insert
function does (does that mean that nobody has ever tried to use non-
aligned watchpoints on SysV?).
(And go32-nat.c should probably get the same change as you did above.)
