ARM EABI: GDB internal error on printing out float (VFP math)

Hello all,

I've ran into this running the GDB testsuite, store.exp.

-bash-3.2# gdb store

Breakpoint 1, wack_float (u=-1, v=-2) at /opt/eldk42armFP/armFP/tmp/store.c:11

(gdb) n
12 l = add_float (l, r);
(gdb) p r
../../gdb/regcache.c:178: internal-error: register_size: Assertion `regnum >= 0 && regnum < (gdbarch_num_regs (current_gdbarch) + gdbarch_num_pseudo_regs (current_gdbarch))' failed.
A problem internal to GDB has been detected,
further debugging may prove unreliable.
Quit this debugging session? (y or n)

Here is the reduced testcase: float add_float (register float u, register float v) { return u + v; }

wack_float (register float u, register float v)
  register float l = u, r = v;
  l = add_float (l, r);
  return l + r;

main ()
  wack_float (-1, -2);
  return 0;

The test was built as follows: arm-linux-gcc -o store -g store.c -mfpu=vfp -mfloat-abi=softfp

arm-linux-gcc -v

The problem reproduced with GDB 6.8-release, as well.

Thanks for any help,
