  Here's v3 of the series I previously posted here:

  https://inbox.sourceware.org/gdb-patches/20220713222433.374898-1-pedro@palves.net/

New in v3:

  - Addressed Simon's comments throughout.

  - Addressed Tom de Vries' comments: now builds with
    --enable-targets=all, and the testcases should work with no glibc
    debug info.

  - There are a few new patches:

      - [PATCH 07/31] enum_flags to_string

      Already approved by Simon.  The patches that introduce the new
      GDB_THREAD_OPTION_XXX option flags make use of this now to
      pretty-print the flags.

      - [PATCH 16/31] Move deleting thread on TARGET_WAITKIND_THREAD_EXITED to core

      This was half done in another patch previously.  In v3, it's
      been moved to a separate preparatory patch, and in all-stop, we
      now delete threads when pending-exits just before we report a
      stop to the user.

      - [PATCH 31/31] Cancel execution command on thread exit, when stepping, nexting, etc.

      The testcase was augmented to better cover all scenarios.

  - This series now applies on top of this other series I posted last
    week:

    [PATCH 0/6] Eliminate infrun_thread_thread_exit observer
    https://inbox.sourceware.org/gdb-patches/20221203211338.2264994-1-pedro@palves.net/T/#t

For your convenience, I've pushed this to the
users/palves/step-over-thread-exit-v3 branch.

Here's the series description, updated for v3:

This is a new series that replaces two different series from last
year.

The first is this series Simon and I wrote, here:

  [PATCH 00/10] Step over thread exit (PR gdb/27338)
  https://sourceware.org/pipermail/gdb-patches/2021-July/180567.html

The other is a series that coincidentally, back then, Andrew posted at
about the same time, and that addressed problems in kind of the mirror
scenario.  His patch series was about stepping over clone (creating
new threads), instead of stepping over thread exit:

  [PATCH 0/3] Stepping over clone syscall
  https://sourceware.org/pipermail/gdb-patches/2021-June/180517.html

My & Simon's solution back then involved adding a new contract between
GDB and GDBserver -- if a thread is single stepping, and it exits, the
server was supposed to report back the thread's exit to GDB.  One of
the motivations for this approach was to be able to control the
enablement of thread exit events per thread, to avoid creating
thread-exit event traffic unnecessarily, as done by
target_thread_events()/QThreadEvents.

Andrew's solution involves using the QThreadEvents mechanism, which
tells the server to report thread create and thread exit events for
all threads.  This would conflict with the desire to avoid unnecessary
traffic in the step over thread exit series.

The step over clone fixes back then also weren't yet fully complete,
as Andrew's series only addressed inline step overs.  Fixing displaced
stepping over clone syscall would still remain broken.

This new series fixes all of stepping over thread exit and clone, for
both of displaced stepping and inline step overs.  It:

- Merges both Andrew's and my/Simon's series, and then reworks both
  parts in different ways.

- Introduces clone events at the GDB core and remote protocol level.

- Gets rid of the idea of "reporting thread exit if thread is
  single-stepping", replaces it by a new mechanism GDB can use to
  explicitly enable thread clone and/or thread exit events, and other
  events in the future.  The old mechanism also only worked when the
  remote server supported hardware single-stepping.  This new approach
  has an advantage of also working on software single-step targets.

- Uses the new clone events to fix displaced stepping over clone
  syscalls too.

- Addresses an issue that Andrew alluded to in his series, and that
  coincidentally, we/AMD also ran into with AMDGPU debugging --
  currently, with "set scheduler-locking on", if you step over a
  function that spawns a thread, that thread runs free, for a bit at
  least, and then may stop or not, basically in an unspecified manner.

- Addresses Simon's review comments on the original "Step over thread
  exit" series referenced above.

- Centralizes "[Thread ...exited]" notifications in core code.

- Cancels next/step/until/etc. commands on thread exit event, like so:

     (gdb) n
     [Thread 0x7ffff7d89700 (LWP 3961883) exited]
     Command aborted, thread exited.
     (gdb)

There are documentation changes in the following patches:

   [PATCH 23/31] Don't resume new threads if scheduler-locking is in effect
   [PATCH 28/31] Document remote clone events, and QThreadOptions packet

... and they have both already been approved by Eli, in v2.  (They
haven't changed in v3).

Tested on x86-64 Ubuntu 20.04, native and gdbserver.

(Slightly fixing subject, I had forgotten to include "v3" there when I posted this.)

I had planned to wait until the branch was cut before considering putting this in, and meanwhile
it's been a few weeks since that has happened.  So I am considering doing that (putting this in).
I'll wait a bit more in case someone wants to chime in.

Hi!

I've addressed all the review comments in the remaining patches in the series, and none
required any invasive/design change, so I'm going ahead with merging the final result.  I'll
still post the resulting/final v4 series to the list, and of course I'll be happy to
address any comments and will be on the lookout for problems this series might cause.
