Re: [RFA] Process record and replay, 8/10

Thanks Doug,

Others told me it too. But I don't know how to do it is better.
Put "i386_process_record" to other file "i386-record".
Or keep it in i386-tdep but let it call other function in other file

The second is clear, but it's low quality.

What do you guys think?
