I think this is becoming more of the linux kernel issue now. Serial connection
stubs are handled here kernel/debug/gdbstub.c: int gdb_serial_stub(struct
kgdb_state *ks)
      case 'g': /* return the value of the CPU registers */

I think this function handles the packet we were talking about.
I'll check how many register we actually send and where it's determined.
Thanks, Reinoud.
