A flexible GDB target description for processor diversity

Sep 8, 2017



GDB target description is of XML format to describe the registers and types on a given architecture. As processor architectures exploit diversity, the inflexibility in GDB target description emerges. I'll present the work to address the inflexibility in GDB target description to better support various architectures, and their variants and extensions. I'll also present the current state of the project.
