Subject: [PATCH 7/7] kgdb: Make mem access function weak in kgdb.c andkgdb.h
Date: Tue, 21 Oct 2008 14:14:53 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1224616493-23237-8-git-send-email-jason.wessel@windriver.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1224616493-23237-7-git-send-email-jason.wessel@windriver.com>

From: Sonic Zhang <sonic.adi@gmail.com>

L1 instruction memory and MMR memory on blackfin can not be accessed by
common functions probe_kernel_read() and probe_kernel_write().
Blackfin asks for 2/4 byte align access to MMR memory and DMA access to
L1 instruction memory. These functions need to be reimplemented in
architecture specific kgdb.c. Update documentation and prototypes as
well.
