Ulrich Weigand - Sept. 6, 2019, 4:33 p.m.
Hello,

as announced earlier, I'd like to remove support for debugging the
Cell Broadband Engine:
https://sourceware.org/ml/gdb-patches/2019-04/msg00008.html

This patch implements removal of Cell/B.E. support, including
- Support for the spu-*-* target
- Support for native stand-alone SPU debugging
- Support for integrated debugging of combined PPU/SPU applications
- Remote debugging (gdbserver) support for all the above.

The patch also removes the TARGET_OBJECT_SPU target object type,
as this is available only on Cell/B.E. targets, including
- Native Linux support
- Core file support (including core file generation)
- Remote target support, including removal of the qXfer:spu:read
  and qXfer:spu:write remote protocal packets and associated
  support in gdbserver.

There are a few other common-code features that were added in support
of integrated multi-architecture debugging, which this patch leaves
in place, in particular:
- The <compatible> tdesc XML feature.
- The arch_stratum target layer.
- The target_ops::thread_architecture callback (which now actually
  has another user still left in place!).

If those remain unused, it might be worthwhile to remove them
as well at some point.

Tested on powerpc64le-linux and s390x-linux.

OK for mainline?

Bye,
Ulrich
