Re: [RFA] Add interface for registering JITed code

Yeah, I changed my mind, let's not worry about it.  If it ever comes up,
we can deal with it then without breaking compatibility.

Tom> I don't think you need the cast here.  There are a few of these.

Reid> Actually, it is, because entry_addr is a CORE_ADDR.  CORE_ADDR fits

Oh, I see.  It is better to just do the allocation; I think we try to
avoid casting between CORE_ADDR and void*.

Is the comment here really valid?
I think it should probably mention jit_event_handler, not

Reid> +//#include "assert.h"
Reid> +//#include "string.h"

Just delete these.
(And just FYI, gdb doesn't allow "//" comments.)

Reid> +/* Openning the file is a no-op.  */

Typo, should be "opening".

Reid> +  /* If we already found the symbols and successfully set the breakpoint, don't
Reid> +     do it again.  */
Reid> +  if (jit_descriptor_addr != 0)
Reid> +    return;

I'm sorry I didn't notice this before.

This approach won't work if you have address space randomization enabled
and you re-run the inferior.
