Re: Valgrind porting

Hello again!

I searched and asked around for 'teaching Valgrind syscalls', and I found
that the syscall wrapper has to be implemented inside coregrind:

precisely in coregrind/m_syswrap/syswrap-*.c.

So the nature of this project involves implementing all the syscalls in the
supposed to be coregrind/m_syswrap/syswrap-hurd.c, I presume?
And then making the successful cross-compile to make it work?

This is the second step as written in the project idea page, the first being
doing the corresponding for kernel traps. (So how would these kernel traps
be implemented, is the coregrind, I presume?)

Where in the source of hurd/mach shall I find all the syscalls and kernel traps,
so that I could make a list of them to study and to work on them? (the directory)

I'll dig into the background knowledge for RPCs (syscalls) and kernel traps
this week on.

Feedbacks, please.

It does not mean "intercepting", but writing in the valgrind source code
what read/write operations the syscall is supposed to be doing: valgrind
does not intercept anything, it just knows what syscalls are supposed to
read and write.
