Re: [PATCH] Conditional tracepoints

Very cool.

Now I'm wondering if we could use agent expressions for conditional
breakpoints somehow :-)

Are either of these free software?

Could use a header comment.

This seems fishy to me.

At the very least I think this should be in a header, not in the .c
file.  But... other cases like this seem to be expressed via target
methods, not as direct calls into remote.c.

(I thought maybe remote.o was not always compiled in; there are
comments to that effect, but they appear to be stale.)
