Pedro Alves May 21, 2015, 11:19 p.m. UTC
In order to teach non-stop mode to do in-line step-overs (pause all
threads, remove breakpoint, single-step, reinsert breakpoint, restart
threads), we'll need to be able to queue in-line step over requests,
much like we queue displaced stepping (out-of-line) requests.
Actually, the queue should be the same -- threads wait for their turn
to step past something (breakpoint, watchpoint), doesn't matter what
technique we end up using when the step over actually starts.

I found that the queue management ends up simpler and more efficient
if embedded in the thread objects themselves.  This commit converts
the existing displaced stepping queue to that.  Later patches will
make the in-line step-overs code paths use it too.

gdb/ChangeLog:
2015-05-21  Pedro Alves  <palves@redhat.com>

	* gdbthread.h (struct thread_info) <step_over_prev,
	step_over_next>: New fields.
	(thread_step_over_chain_enqueue, thread_step_over_chain_remove)
	(thread_step_over_chain_next, thread_is_in_step_over_chain): New
	declarations.
	* infrun.c (struct displaced_step_request): Delete.
	(struct displaced_step_inferior_state) <step_request_queue>:
	Delete field.
	(displaced_step_prepare): Assert that trap_expected is set.  Use
	thread_step_over_chain_enqueue.  Split starting a new displaced
	step to ...
	(start_step_over): ... this new function.
	(resume): Assert the thread isn't waiting for a step over already.
	(proceed): Assert the thread isn't waiting for a step over
	already.
	(infrun_thread_stop_requested): Adjust to remove threads from the
	embedded step-over chain.
	(handle_inferior_event) <fork/vfork>: Call start_step_over after
	displaced_step_fixup.
	(handle_signal_stop): Call start_step_over after
	displaced_step_fixup.
	* infrun.h (step_over_queue_head): New declaration.
	* thread.c (step_over_chain_enqueue, step_over_chain_remove)
	(thread_step_over_chain_next, thread_is_in_step_over_chain)
	(thread_step_over_chain_enqueue)
	(thread_step_over_chain_remove): New functions.
	(delete_thread_1): Remove thread from the step-over chain.
