I'll separate them.


This patchset teaches this to GDBServer and enables support for
tracepoints and
software breakpoints.

Support tracepoint on ARM (with software single step in GDBserver side)
can be the third part.

This is already a separate patch, namely  7/7.

Patch 7/7 does more than supporting tracepoint.  Tracepoint support
should be done in one patch, and this patch is only about tracepoint support.

Right I can separate the software breakpoint.

Did you meant to create a patchset for it ?

I guess I could separate the patch in maybe 2 or 3 but isn't it better
to keep it inside the patchset otherwise we will have to sync 3
patchsets versions since they depend on each other ?

How about starting from software breakpoint on ARM-linux GDBserver?  It
doesn't depends on tracepoints.  After this patch set is reviewed and
committed, you can post tracepoint patch set.

Alright that can be done.
