Subject: [PATCH 1/7] kgdb: Add the ability to schedule a breakpoint via a tasklet
Date: Tue, 21 Oct 2008 14:14:47 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1224616493-23237-2-git-send-email-jason.wessel@windriver.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1224616493-23237-1-git-send-email-jason.wessel@windriver.com>

Some kgdb I/O modules require the ability to create a breakpoint
tasklet, such as kgdboc and external modules such as kgdboe.  The
breakpoint tasklet is used as an asynchronous entry point into the
debugger which will have a different function scope than the current
execution path where it might not be safe to have an inline breakpoint
inside the kgdb I/O driver.
