Hello,

I (belatedly) noticed an announcement on the GDB web page that the mcore
target has been declared obsolete and is going to be deleted from gdb in
the next release.

I have made some inquiries about the impact this would have on our
customers, and although the response wasn't huge, it was definitely not
zero.  There's a small but determined population of developers who
continue to use gdb with mcore.  It also has a small but growing market
with small firms working through distributors, as well as a new design
group in China that prefers to use non-Microsoft tools.

I don't know if one vote matters, but I vote to save the mcore.

Thanks,
Brian
