Re: RE: question of watchpoint

I'm glad to receive your reply.  I got your point. You mean it depends on the architecture implementation.
But If the architecture is evaluated on the physical address, how should be gdb do?

The question is what the underlying hardware does.  On IA, the watchpoint is evaluated on the linear (virtual) address, so you wouldn't get an exception when modifying the memory via the other mapping.
