Since you asked for comments ;-):
Yikes! That qGetTLSAddr in the function name is really ugly.
That said, I don't understand why there's any need for the remote code
to get so deep into the core GDB code. I don't see the big picture
yet, but my initial reaction is that this must be wrong. Why does the
remote protocol need to know more than a native GDB?
The patch below implements support for the qGetTLSAddr packet. See:
This patch also adds a new gdbarch method for fetching the OS / ABI
specific load module parameters.
I don't think this should be added to the "glibal" gdbbarch vector.
Instead, this probably should be architecture-dependent data that's
only known to the remote protocol module.
