Metzger, Markus T Jan. 26, 2018, 2:14 p.m. UTC
Change error reporting to use exceptions and be prepared to catch them in
gdbserver.  We use the exception message in our error reply to GDB.

This may remove some detail from the error message in the native case since
errno is no longer printed.  Later patches will improve that.

2018-01-26  Markus Metzger  <markus.t.metzger@intel.com>

gdbserver/
	* server.c (handle_btrace_enable_bts, handle_btrace_enable_pt)
	(handle_btrace_disable): Change return type to void.  Use exceptions
	to report errors.
	(handle_btrace_general_set): Catch exception and copy message to
	return message.

gdb/
	* nat/linux-btrace.c (linux_enable_btrace): Throw exception if enabling
	btrace failed.
	* x86-linux-nat.c (x86_linux_enable_btrace): Catch btrace enabling
	exception and use message in own exception.
