[PATCH] [Binutils] Add MTE register set support for core files

Luis Machado luis.machado@linaro.org
Tue May 11 13:19:37 GMT 2021


Teach binutils/GDB how to read core files containing the MTE register set,
which contains a single register called tagged_addr_ctrl.

bfd/ChangeLog:

YYYY-MM-DD  Luis Machado  <luis.machado@linaro.org>

	* elf-bfd.h (elfcore_write_aarch_mte): New prototype.
	* elf.c (elfcore_grok_aarch_mte, elfcore_write_aarch_mte): New
	functions.
	(elfcore_grok_note): Handle notes of type NT_ARM_TAGGED_ADDR_CTRL.
	(elfcore_write_register_note): Handle MTE notes.
