Re: [PATCH 0/4] Support tracepoints for ARM linux in GDBServer

There are still some things we need to do before arm tracepoint support,
and I am working on them,

 - really exercise the software single step in gdbserver,
   1. software single step over instruction branch to itself.  [DONE]
   2. force gdb to use vCont;s for gdbserver using software single step,
   IOW, let gdbserver handle single step requested by gdb,
   3. turn range stepping on on arm linux,

   I have some patches in my tree.  After these steps, we are confident
   that software single step in gdbserver is reliable.

 - handle unavailable memory/register in frame unwinding in target
   independent part, so that we don't have to worry about the
   unavailable memory in arm backend.
   I am writing a prototype according to Pedro's thoughts,
   but it is blocked by a patch related PR 19947,
   we need an approach to test each unwinder, the discussion is still

I won't review arm tracepoint patches until all of them above are
