Currently access to the last pseudo register is aliased to a1. This is
done by little snippets in the beginning of xtensa_pseudo_register_read
and xtensa_pseudo_register_write that used to do such aliasing for FP
register since bdb4c075a29dd086f0868b394b488b1c94666be6, but then
FP_ALIAS was expanded into gdbarch_num_regs (current_gdbarch) +
gdbarch_num_pseudo_regs (current_gdbarch) (one register past the last
pseudo register) in 304fe2552d6e0821e8fdb7575f8e7ba6607a076d, which
then was changed to the last pseudo register in
94a0e877111421d300d26b858bd3a0a27078d1e8.

Drop these snippets.

IIUC, the original intention was for FP to alias a1, and then through
that series of patches (part of old current_gdbarch elimination)
we ended up aliasing the wrong register.  Instead of fixing the
aliasing, you're just removing it altogether.  Correct?

OK.

Thanks,

I'm removing that aliasing to expose the last pseudoregister.
After that patch fp pseudo register still exists and it is a read only alias
for a1. I don't think that's right, because normally frame pointer is a7 or
a15, depending on ABI, but that's definitely a separate question.

If the compiler allocated a frame pointer for the function, it is
a7 or a15 according to ABI, correct.  If no separate pointer is
allocated (usually when no variable stack allocation such as alloca
or similar is used in the function), I believe a1 is effectively
both the stack pointer and the frame pointer.

Ah, ok.  FAOD, patch is still OK.  :-)
