xtensa GDB may be used with both bare-metal and linux-based
applications. In case of bare-metal application gdbserver is able to
provide information about all CPU registers: both unprivileged and
privileged. In case of linux-based application only a small subset of
privileged state is available. Currently xtensa GDB only expects
unprivileged registers in 'g' packets and it fails to communicate with
server that sends both privileged and unprivileged registers.

Allow bare-metal xtensa GDB to deal with both privileged and
unprivileged registers by initializing tdep->num_regs with the total
number of target CPU registers. Keep linux-based xtensa GDB
functionality as is by copying tdep->num_nopriv_regs to tdep->num_regs.

	* xtensa-linux-tdep.c (xtensa-tdep.h): New include.
	(xtensa_linux_init_abi): Limit tdep->num_regs by
	tdep->num_nopriv_regs.
	* xtensa-tdep.c (xtensa_derive_tdep): Calculate
	tdep->num_nopriv_regs and only copy it to tdep->num_regs if it's
	not initialized.

Changes v1->v2:
- expand description.

Thanks for the updated patch with the rationale in the
commit log.  That helps.

I have a feeling that this would be best address with xml
target descriptions, but I really don't know enough about
xtensa to say for sure.  This is OK with me as is.

Thanks,

Thank you. Applied to master.
