Hi All,

I've got a new gdb-5.1 patch available for mass consumption. It's been 
rewritten to use the gdbarch facilities. This looks to be the direction 
that gdb is headed, so it might make it easier to get this patch merged in 
when it ready.

This is still a pre-release patch. There's still a few little details that 
need to be cleaned, but overall it seems to be working extremely well. I 
know of at least one person that is using it with my simulator to do real 
debugging work on his project.

Now I need people to try it out and review it so I can find/fix any 
remaining bugs I haven't come across yet.

For those of you still using avrmon-stk200, this patch will not work for 
you. I had to remove the avrmon parts due to them using deprecated stuff. 
This isn't as bad as it seems though. I've looked at the avrmon-stk200 
host program code and I don't see why it couldn't be re-worked to use 
gdb's remote serial protocol. I think in the long run that might be the 
better approach. I'm interested in exactly how many people are still using 
avrmon. Please email me. If enough of you ask, I might try to do the work 
on avrmon myself (although I'd rather the avrmon maintainer did it).

For those of you using Scott Finneran's Avarice program, this patch should 
work for you. Please note though that Scott is having some problems with 
it. I've not had any problems myself except with a rather large program he 
sent me. Except for the program he sent me, I haven't been able to 
duplicate the problem. I'd would really help us for avarice users to try 
this patch and let me know how it works for you.

Here's where you can get the patch:
