- Subject: [RFA 0/3] Make global symbol objfile search order arch-dependent
This patch re-implement objfile searching order to make it gdbarch-
dependent. There are three patches to this series:
#1: Reverts my first patch, in order to start from a clean slate.
#2: Introduces the new gdbarch method, and modifies the relevant
code to use it, instead of using ALL_OBJFILES. The gdbarch's
default implemention, which is equivalent to ALL_OBJFILES,
is still used for all platforms, so there should be no functional
change on any platform, yet.
#3: Introduces a windows-specific version of that new gdbarch
method, and installs it for x86 and amd64 windows targets.
The patch series has been tested on x86_64-linux, as well as on
x86-windows, but using AdaCore's testsuite. No regression observed.
