- Subject: Support for Overlays in target dependent code
I am working on Xtensa architecture (gdb-7.*/gdb/xtensa-tdep.c). I wish
to add overlay support for Xtensa. Seeing other similar architectures, I
believe the only addition required for overlay support to seamlessly
work (assuming no other changes in other target dependent code) would be:
set_gdbarch_overlay_update (gdbarch, simple_overlay_update);
in <target>_gdbarch_init(), just as is the case with regards to ARM and
Is anything else required too?
