Thank you for the pointer. That target description works fine for me,
but I noticed that it uses the org.gnu.gdb.arm.core feature which
describes the "cpsr" register. That register is named "xpsr" in GDB's
default M-profile feature:

It seems appropriate to use the org.gnu.gdb.arm.m-profile feature rather
than the org.gnu.gdb.arm.core feature and therefore adopt the register
naming used by current GDB for M-profile targets. However, this might
possibly cause problems for people who have existing GDB scripts
developed for arm-eabi-gdb that reference the cpsr
register by name. Does anyone care about this?
