Hi Samuel,

The patch looks good to me, although I can't really try it and confirm it
works.

Some coding style comments: unless the variable is logically a boolean, we
try to be explicit in our comparisons:

  if (pointer != NULL)
  if (integer != 0)

instead of

  if (pointer)
  if (integer)

So if you could fix that throughout the patch, it would be appreciated.  We
would also need a ChangeLog entry.  If you can add that, as well as a proper
title and commit message, and re-submit using git-send-email, it would be
appreciated.  More comments below.

Hello,

Well, I had put a ChangeLog entry at the top of the posted file. Is
something else needed?  In the patch I have just sent to the list I have
directly put the gdb/ChangeLog update in addition to the commit message
log.  If that is what is wanted, then the gdb/CONTRIBUTE file should be
update, otherwise frustration happens on both sides.

Ah, sorry I missed it.  I ended up using git-apply to apply the patch (git-am
wouldn't work), which looses the information before the diff.

I'll reply to the other mail.

Can we do these two checks earlier, so we don't do unnecessary work in
those cases?

Also, please add a space after sizeof (as if it was a function call).

+  if (memaddr + len > sizeof(auxv))
+    len = sizeof(auxv) - memaddr;
+
+  memcpy (readbuf, (gdb_byte*) &auxv + memaddr, len);

Space before *.
