Hi JIfl

(In reply to comment #41)

Now I have enough Cortex-M4F architectural support to do some GDB testing. I
have applied the attachment (id=1648) and it seems to work with following

1. Remote 'g' packet reply is too long

If I connect to gdb server (RedBoot on Cortex-M4F) prior to submit the elf file
I get the error /Remote 'g' packet reply is too long/:

--- Capture -------
(gdb) target remote
Remote debugging using
Remote 'g' packet reply is too long:
--- Capture END -------

If I introduce a target file before connection, GDB get's prepared for this
packet and accepts connection.

This is probably not a problem when using gdb from command line, but it is with

2. Potential eCos/RedBoot issues

Since register numbers are not consecutive there may be issue with some stub
eCos/Redboot functions: For instance stub_format_registers() requires
consecutive numbers.


P.S. I am going to open bug(s) on Cortex_M4F architectural support but for GDB
matters perhaps we continue in Bug 1001524.
