Sorry for spamming you, one last thing :)
I forgot to ask you, what is it in this patch that is breaking the AArch64
gdbserver build in this? And what would it take for you not to break it?
We generally try to keep things building at each commit, so I'd just like
a bit more justifications about why it's worth breaking it here, rather than
doing the necessary work to keep it building.
