Leaves me wondering what field of regs other than regs.dbg_regs is
the kernel actually looking at then for NT_ARM_HW_WATCH/NT_ARM_HW_BREAK,
given regs.dbg_regs _is_ initialized:
for (i = 0; i < count; i++)
regs.dbg_regs[i].addr = addr[i];
regs.dbg_regs[i].ctrl = ctrl[i];
if (ptrace (PTRACE_SETREGSET, tid,
watchpoint ? NT_ARM_HW_WATCH : NT_ARM_HW_BREAK,
(void *) &iov))
Makes me wonder whether the issue is that "count" isn't right for
the running kernel.
Was a patch for gdbserver ever posted/committed? AFAICS,
gdbserver's aarch64_linux_set_debug_regs is an exact copy of gdb's.
