Is it a common case for GDB? Can this "fake" context bring me some
erroneous debug info?
I had such an idea, but due to doubt I mentioned above, decided not even
to try. Now I will =)
So, I guess, dump/restore approach works only in two cases:
a) debugging live process you have attached to (it's not my case, as I
perform postmortem debug)
b) already has loaded core file, which provides a context via saved CPU
state - and it is the way I chose to follow.
For step (B) - first load a dummy (tiny) standard core file - that gives
you a debug context, think of it as a shim.
