Re: [PATCH v3 02/13] regcache: Add functions suitable for regset_supply/collect.

A tiny fix to that:

commit a01cbb490b34eda832c0215b8447e6aef68b0278
Author: Thomas Schwinge <>
Date:   Thu Sep 11 22:30:23 2014 +0200

    Make gdb/regcache.h self-contained.
    	* regcache.h (struct regset): Declare.
    Commit 0b3092721e5cfa1697f1dafe81efefdbb0236f21 added uses of struct regset to
    gdb/regcache.h, but that struct is not declared in this file, and, as it
    happens, also nowhere else in the #include chain on x86 GNU/Hurd.  This results
    in warnings/errors such as:
        gcc-4.8 [...] ../../W._C._Handy/gdb/gdb.c
        In file included from ./nm.h:25:0,
                         from ../../W._C._Handy/gdb/defs.h:454,
                         from ../../W._C._Handy/gdb/gdb.c:19:
        ../../W._C._Handy/gdb/regcache.h:190:9: warning: 'struct regset' declared inside parameter list [enabled by default]
                 size_t size);
        ../../W._C._Handy/gdb/regcache.h:190:9: warning: its scope is only this definition or declaration, which is probably not what you want [enabled by default]
        ../../W._C._Handy/gdb/regcache.h:193:10: warning: 'struct regset' declared inside parameter list [enabled by default]
                  int regnum, void *buf, size_t size);
