Re: RFC: ARM simulator coredump

Hi Fred,

Which gdb test(s) in particular ?

Sure - that would be me.  The patch has the right idea, but also a few
mistakes.  Mind you seeing it prompted me to dig up an old patch that
I had for this and apply it.  Please try updating your sources and let
me know if this had fixed things.

In case you are interested here are a few comments on the patch.

This was a bug in the original code.  The intention was to test the
ARMul_CP14_R0_ENABLE bit in the r0 register of co-processor 14, so '&'
should have been used instead of '&&'.  Hence the correct version of
this line would be:

          if (ok && (cp14r0 & ARMul_CP14_R0_ENABLE))

> -	      if (cp14r0 && ARMul_CP14_R0_CCD)
> +	      if (ok && ARMul_CP14_R0_CCD)

A similar comment applied here, plus there is no need to retest 'ok'.

And here.

There is no need to declare a 'temp' variable here.  There is a
variable of the same type and name declared at the top of the
function, and it is no longer being used by this point.
