Re: AW: [Simulavr-devel] [patch #3453] gdbserver.c gdb_extract_hex_nu m(

Subject: Re: AW: [Simulavr-devel] [patch #3453] gdbserver.c gdb_extract_hex_nu m(...) bug fix (for more recent gdb versions)

num is an integer, not a string, hex nibbles are 4 bit's wide,
hence to build an integer out of a sequence of hex-chars->nibbles
one shifts the integer by 4.
