Joel Brobecker - May 7, 2018, 9:47 p.m.
Hi Pedro,

What do you think of the following approach? The idea is to make
sure we never forget to set the expedite_regs field when we initialize
the tdesc.

One part that could be up for discussion is how the constants for
x86 and x86-64 targets are being shared. The way it's done, right
now, each unit that includes x86-tdesc.h would end up with its own
static copy of the constants. I don't think it should be a problem
in practice, but if there is a better solution...

gdb/ChangeLog:

        * regformats/regdat.sh: Adjust script, following the addition
        of the new expedite_regs parameter to init_target_desc.

gdb/gdbserver/ChangeLog:

        * tdesc.h (init_target_desc) <expedite_regs>: New parameter.
        * tdesc.c (init_target_desc) <expedite_regs>: New parameter.
        Use it to set the expedite_regs field in the given tdesc.
        * x86-tdesc.h: New file.
        * linux-aarch64-tdesc.c (aarch64_linux_read_description):
        Adjust following the addition of the new expedite_regs parameter
        to init_target_desc.
        * linux-tic6x-low.c (tic6x_read_description): Likewise.
        * linux-x86-tdesc.c: #include "x86-tdesc.h".
        (i386_linux_read_description, amd64_linux_read_description):
        Adjust following the addition of the new expedite_regs parameter
        to init_target_desc.
        * lynx-i386-low.c: #include "x86-tdesc.h".
        (lynx_i386_arch_setup): Adjust following the addition of the new
        expedite_regs parameter to init_target_desc.
        * nto-x86-low.c: #include "x86-tdesc.h".
        (nto_x86_arch_setup): Adjust following the addition of the new
        expedite_regs parameter to init_target_desc.
        * win32-i386-low.c: #include "x86-tdesc.h".
        (i386_arch_setup): Adjust following the addition of the new
        expedite_regs parameter to init_target_desc.

Tested on x86_64-linux, with and without gdbserver. Tested on
x86-windows as well (using GDBserver with AdaCore's gdb-testsuite).
Same results as before.

Thanks, this looks good to me.

Thanks, Pedro. Does it mean the first two look OK to you as well,
or should I wait for specific review. Given that GDBserver appears
to have been broken for quite a while, I don't think we are in any
kind of hurry... Unless we decide to backport to 8.1.1?

Thanks. I think I will start running ispell on my revision logs.

For various reasons, I had to transition from a laptop keyboard
with nice scissor switches to super nice PC keyboard, but with
cherry-mx keys, so very very different. I seem to be making
those kinds of mistakes...

Fixed locally.

Let me take a look.  I think I have a question about patch #2.

I think backporting would be good.

Thanks Pedro. Pushed to master and gdb-8.1-branch, under PR cli/23158.

Patch

From 76d0a2d702956bd7aa950b1ab4ce3b9dc6727961 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001

Subject: [PATCH] gdbserver/Windows: crash during connection establishment
 phase

On Windows, starting a new process with GDBserver seeems to work,
in the sense that the program does get started, and GDBserver
confirms that it is listening for GDB to connect. However, as soon as
GDB establishes the connection with GDBserver, and starts discussing
with it, GDBserver crashes, with a SEGV.

This SEGV occurs in remote-utils.c::prepare_resume_reply...

  | regp = current_target_desc ()->expedite_regs;
  | [...]
  | while (*regp)

... because, in our case, REGP is NULL.

This patches fixes the issues by adding a parameter to init_target_desc,
in order to make sure that we always provide the list of registers when
we initialize a target description.

gdb/ChangeLog:

        * regformats/regdat.sh: Adjust script, following the addition
        of the new expedite_regs parameter to init_target_desc.

gdb/gdbserver/ChangeLog:

        * tdesc.h (init_target_desc) <expedite_regs>: New parameter.
        * tdesc.c (init_target_desc) <expedite_regs>: New parameter.
        Use it to set the expedite_regs field in the given tdesc.
        * x86-tdesc.h: New file.
        * linux-aarch64-tdesc.c (aarch64_linux_read_description):
        Adjust following the addition of the new expedite_regs parameter
        to init_target_desc.
        * linux-tic6x-low.c (tic6x_read_description): Likewise.
        * linux-x86-tdesc.c: #include "x86-tdesc.h".
        (i386_linux_read_description, amd64_linux_read_description):
        Adjust following the addition of the new expedite_regs parameter
        to init_target_desc.
        * lynx-i386-low.c: #include "x86-tdesc.h".
