Here's the current version of the function:

static LONGEST
record_btrace_xfer_partial (struct target_ops *ops, enum target_object object,
			    const char *annex, gdb_byte *readbuf,
			    const gdb_byte *writebuf, ULONGEST offset,
			    LONGEST len)
  struct target_ops *t;

  /* Filter out requests that don't make sense during replay.  */
  if (!record_btrace_allow_memory_access && record_btrace_is_replaying ())
      switch (object)
	    struct target_section *section;

	    /* We do not allow writing memory in general.  */
	    if (writebuf != NULL)

	    /* We allow reading readonly memory.  */
	    section = target_section_by_addr (ops, offset);
	    if (section != NULL)
		/* Check if the section we found is readonly.  */
		if ((bfd_get_section_flags (section->the_bfd_section->owner,
		     & SEC_READONLY) != 0)
		    /* Truncate the request to fit into this section.  */
		    len = min (len, section->endaddr - offset);


  /* Forward the request.  */
  for (ops = ops->beneath; ops != NULL; ops = ops->beneath)
    if (ops->to_xfer_partial != NULL)
      return ops->to_xfer_partial (ops, object, annex, readbuf, writebuf,
				   offset, len);


And here's the new GDB output:

(gdb) print glob
Memory at address 0x601030 unavailable.

This used to be:

(gdb) print glob
This record target does not record memory.
