Hi,

gdb-7.4's bfin simulator fails to build for bfin-rtems* targets on 
Fedora 17/RH rawhide:

....
In file included from /usr/include/linux/ethtool.h:17:0,
                  from /usr/include/linux/mii.h:12,

...

The same configuration builds fine for Fedora 15/16 and openSUSE-11.4/12.1.

 From what I gather, the bfin simulator chokes upon kernel header 
incompatiblities.
