Sorry, didn't think about this possibility!

I've simply added the .h files in the patch below to both the native
and the server targets.  The ptrace call will still be made to
determine the tdesc, but it should return in error and cause the new
features not to be selected (no exceptions are thrown by

Is this ok?

Subject: [PATCH] [PowerPC] Include nat/linux-ptrace.h in native targets

Patch "[PowerPC] Add support for PPR and DSCR" used
PTRACE_GETREGSET/SETREGSET without including the fallback definitions
from "nat/linux-ptrace.h".  Include this header to avoid breaking
builds in older kernels that don't define them.

YYYY-MM-DD  Pedro Franco de Carvalho  <pedromfc@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

	* ppc-linux-nat.c: Include nat/linux-ptrace.h.
