Yes. You have to provide some means for the ICE to retrieve the thread
status from eCos. Probably the best way is to add a vector to do this on
the eCos side, and when the ICE gets requested for thread information, it
will set the target to that vector and start running. The target can gather
the information using calls into GDB stub code and put it in a buffer which
the ICE can retrieve.
