Hi Simon,

In the files that you have reviewed, I only applied fixes according to your
remarks.  However, I noticed that the documentation (gdb/doc/gdb.texinfo)
and one test (gdb.arch/arc-tdesc-cpu.xml) need updating.  They're not that
big of a deal of changes, but they reflect that the features name have
changed in this series of patch.  I plan to update the softwares involved,
like OpenOCD, QEMU, etc.


Cheers,
Shahab

Does that cause backwards compatibility issues?  Could someone have written a gdb stub
returning an XML target description containing the old feature names, which will now not
work due to these name changes?

Do you see a way we could keep backwards compatibility?  Like a way to introduce the new
names, but still make the old names work?

From what it looks like, it should be possible to add a
"backward_compatibility" function layer to search for old
names when the current feature names are not found.  To do
so, I have to pass around the "abfd" data.

I can try implementing it and see if I run into any serious
problem.

Nevertheless, I suggest keeping the test and documentation
in par with the new naming.


Cheers,
Shahab

The documentation part is OK with this nit fixed.

Hi Eli,

In next patch, I will have it replaced with:

  "Here is a list of registers pertinent to this feature:"

I mentioned "_a_ list of registers", because that list does not
cover all auxiliary registers.

But it does cover _all_ the _pertinent_ registers, doesn't it?  If it
does, then "the" is more correct English, AFAIU.

[PATCH v6 0/4] arc: Add GNU/Linux support

Sourceware - gdb-patches mailing list
In reply to this post by Sourceware - gdb-patches mailing list
From: Shahab Vahedi <[hidden email]>

This is a series of changes to enable debugging ARC targets that are
running on a native ARC GNU/Linux system.  Since this heavily relies
on XML target descriptions provided for different targets, that piece
of code has been refactored to accommodate flexible register support.

After this series, there will come patches that add support for
native ARC gdb/gdbserver.

v6: Add backward compatibility for obsolete feature names
 arc-tdep.c:
  - "find_obsolete_[core,aux]_names()" implemented
 gdb/NEWS:
  - Updated with information about these feature name changes.

v5: Changes per remarks of Simon [1] and on my own (documentation and tests)
 arc.h:
  - Made "reg_size" and "isa" constant in "arc_gdbarch_features".
 arc.c:
  - Fix some malformed indentations.
 arc-tdep.h:
  - Inclusion of "gdbarch.h" has its own patch now.
 arc-tdep.c
  - Use "nullptr" instead of "NULL".
  - Remove unnecessary "break"s after "return"s.
  - "determine_core_reg_feature_set" will assert if wrong input is given.
  - Removed dangling comment.
  - Replaced "const auto *" with "const auto" to be consistent.
  - in "arc_check_for_hw_loops()": No "nullptr" check for "aux_regset".
 arc-linux-tdep.c
  - Remove unnecessary empty lines.
  - Replace "breakpoint uses" with "breakpoints use" in a comment.
  - "return condition;" i.s.o. "if (condition) return true; else return false;"
 gdb.texinfo
  - Update documentation regarding the new feature files.
 arc-tdesc-cpu.xml
  - Use new feature names.

[1] Simon's remarks to v4 of the patches
https://sourceware.org/pipermail/gdb-patches/2020-July/170975.html
https://sourceware.org/pipermail/gdb-patches/2020-August/170993.html
https://sourceware.org/pipermail/gdb-patches/2020-August/170994.html

v4: Latest changes per remarks of Simon [2]
 arc-tdep.c
  - Surround "=" in 2 assignments with space.
  - Put the return type of "mach_type_to_arc_isa ()" on the first line.
  - Remove "inline" from "mach_type_to_arc_isa ()".
  - Add space between the "if" conditions for readability.
  - Use "featues.isa" instead of "features.reg_size" in one occurrence.
  - Make "arc_gdbarch_features_init" static
  - Rename "arc_gdbarch_features_init" to "arc_gdbarch_features_create".
  - Adapt "arc_gdbarch_features_create" to act as a constructor.
 arch/arc.c
  - Add a constructor for "arc_gdbarch_features".
  - Get rid of "ARC_ISA_NONE" now that there is a constructor.
 arch/arc.c
  - Use simple assignments (instead of append) for "architecture".
  - Use "string_sprintf ()".
  - Use "target_desc_up" in "arc_tdesc_cache" to avoid memory leakage.
 arc-linux-tdep.c
  - Two occurrences: compare "resolver.minsym" against "nullptr".
 

[2] [PATCH v3 1/3] arc: Add ARCv2 XML target along with refactoring
https://sourceware.org/pipermail/gdb-patches/2020-July/170427.html

v3: Changes after Simon's remarks:
The XML files have reduced to minimal comprehensible set.
The code is adjusted to work with new reg sets and be platform agnostic.

v2: Changes after Tom's remarks:
 arc-tdep.c
  - arc_tdesc_init(): Use "ARC_{R58,R59}_REGNUM" to index "core_regs[]".
  - arc_gdbarch_init(): Use "xfree ()" instead of "XDELETE ()"
  - arc_gdbarch_init(): return "nullptr" instead of "NULL".
  - Use explicit number evaluation, e.g: if (a & b) -> if ((a & b) != 0)
 arc-linux-tdep.c
  - Use true/false instead of TRUE/FALSE.
  - arc_linux_sw_breakpoint_from_kind (): Break long lines into two.
  - arc_linux_sw_breakpoint_from_kind (): Remove starting blank line.
  - Use explicit number evaluation, e.g: if (a & b) -> if ((a & b) != 0)
 gdb/configure.tgt
  - arc*-*-linux*): Remove "build_gdbserver=yes".

[PATCH v6 1/4] arc: Add ARCv2 XML target along with refactoring

Sourceware - gdb-patches mailing list
From: Shahab Vahedi <[hidden email]>

A few changes have been made to make the register support simpler,
more flexible and extendible.  The trigger for most of these changes
are the remarks [1] made earlier for v2 of this patch.  The noticeable
improvements are:

- The arc XML target features are placed under gdb/features/arc
- There are two cores (based on ISA) and one auxiliary feature:
  v1-core: ARC600, ARC601, ARC700
  v2-core: ARC EM, ARC HS
  aux: common in both
- The XML target features represent a minimalistic sane set of
  registers irrespective of application (baremetal or linux).
- A concept of "feature" class has been introduced in the code.
  The "feature" object is constructed from BFD and GDBARCH data.
  It contains necessary information (ISA and register size) to
  determine which XML target feature to use.
- A new structure (ARC_REGISTER_FEATURE) is added that allows
  providing index, names, and the necessity of registers. This
  simplifies the sanity checks and future extendibility.
- Documnetation has been updated to reflect ARC features better.
- Although the feature names has changed, there still exists
  backward compatibility with older names through
  find_obsolete_[core,aux]_names() functions.

The last two points were inspired from RiscV port.

-difference with @samp{org.gnu.gdb.arc.core.v2} feature is in the names of
-@samp{ilink1} and @samp{ilink2} registers and that @samp{r30} is mandatory in
-ARC v2, but @samp{ilink2} is optional on ARCompact.
-
-The @samp{org.gnu.gdb.arc.aux-minimal} feature is required for all ARC
-targets.  It should contain registers @samp{pc} and @samp{status32}.
+ARC processors are so configurable that even core registers and their numbers
+are not predetermined completely.  Moreover, @emph{flags} and @emph{PC}
+registers, which are important to @value{GDBN}, are not ``core'' registers in
+ARC.  Therefore, there are two features that their presence is mandatory:
+@samp{org.gnu.gdb.arc.core} and @samp{org.gnu.gdb.arc.aux}.
+
+The @samp{org.gnu.gdb.arc.core} feature is required for all targets.  It must
+contain registers:
+
+@itemize @minus
+@item
+@samp{r0} through @samp{r25} for normal register file targets.
+@item
+@samp{r0} through @samp{r3}, and @samp{r10} through @samp{r15} for reduced
+register file targets.
+@item
+@samp{gp}, @samp{fp}, @samp{sp}, @samp{r30}@footnote{Not necessary for ARCv1.},
+@samp{blink}, @samp{lp_count}, @samp{pcl}.
+@end itemize
+
+In case of an ARCompact target (ARCv1 ISA), the @samp{org.gnu.gdb.arc.core}
+feature may contain registers @samp{ilink1} and @samp{ilink2}.  While in case
+of ARC EM and ARC HS targets (ARCv2 ISA), register @samp{ilink} may be present.
+The difference between ARCv1 and ARCv2 is the naming of registers @emph{29th}
+and @emph{30th}.  They are called @samp{ilink1} and @samp{ilink2} for ARCv1 and
+are optional.  For ARCv2, they are called @samp{ilink} and @samp{r30} and only
+@samp{ilink} is optional.  The optionality of @samp{ilink*} registers is
+because of their inaccessibility during user space debugging sessions.
+
+Extension core registers @samp{r32} through @samp{r59} are optional and their
+existence depends on the configuration.  When debugging GNU/Linux applications,
+i.e. user space debugging, these core registers are not available.
+
+The @samp{org.gnu.gdb.arc.aux} feature is required for all ARC targets.  It
+should at least contain @samp{pc} and @samp{status32} registers.

[PATCH v6 2/4] arc: Add inclusion of "gdbarch.h" in "arc-tdep.h"

Sourceware - gdb-patches mailing list
In reply to this post by Sourceware - gdb-patches mailing list
From: Shahab Vahedi <[hidden email]>

The "arc-tdep.h" makes use of definitions in "gdbarch.h", but it
does not include it explicitly.  I have piggy backed this fix
in another commit [1], but I was asked to do it separately [2].

[PATCH v6 3/4] arc: Add hardware loop detection

Sourceware - gdb-patches mailing list
In reply to this post by Sourceware - gdb-patches mailing list
From: Shahab Vahedi <[hidden email]>

For ARC there are registers that are not part of a required set in XML
target descriptions by default, but are almost always present on ARC
targets and are universally exposed by the ptrace interface.  Hardware
loop registers being one of them.

LP_START and LP_END auxiliary registers are hardware loop start and end.
Formally, they are optional, but it is hard to find an ARC configuration
that doesn't have them.  They are always present in processors that can
run GNU/Linux.  GDB needs to know about those registers to implement
proper software single stepping, since they affect  what instruction
will be next.

This commit adds the code to check for the existance of "lp_start" and
"lp_end" in XML target descriptions. If they exist, then the function
reports that the target supports hardware loops.

gdb/ChangeLog:

        * arc-tdep.c (arc_check_for_hardware_loop): New.
        * arc-tdep.h (gdbarch_tdep): New field has_hw_loops.

gdb/doc/ChangeLog:

        * gdb.texinfo (Synopsys ARC): Document LP_START, LP_END and BTA.

[PATCH v6 4/4] arc: Add GNU/Linux support for ARC

Sourceware - gdb-patches mailing list
In reply to this post by Sourceware - gdb-patches mailing list
From: Anton Kolesov <[hidden email]>

ARC Linux targets differences from baremetal:

- No support for hardware single instruction stepping.
- Different access rules to registers.
- Use of another instruction for breakpoints.

v2: Changes after Tom's remarks [1]
 arc-linux-tdep.c
  - Use true/false instead of TRUE/FALSE.
  - arc_linux_sw_breakpoint_from_kind (): Break long lines into two.
  - arc_linux_sw_breakpoint_from_kind (): Remove starting blank line.
  - Use explicit number evaluation, e.g: if (a & b) -> if ((a & b) != 0)
 arc-tdep.c
  - Use explicit number evaluation, e.g: if (a & b) -> if ((a & b) != 0)
 gdb/configure.tgt
  - arc*-*-linux*): Remove "build_gdbserver=yes".

v3: Changes after Simon's remarks [2]
  arc-linux-tdep.c
  - Use "return trap_size" instead of cryptic "return 2".
  - Removed unnecessary curly braces.
  - Removed "void" from "_initialize_arc_linux_tdep (void)".

v5: Changes after Simon's remarks [3]
- Remove unnecessary empty lines.
- Replace "breakpoint uses" with "breakpoints use" in a comment.
- "return condition;" i.s.o. "if (condition) return true; else return false;"

[1] Tom's remarks

[3] Simon's remarks on v4
https://sourceware.org/pipermail/gdb-patches/2020-August/170994.html

2020-08-03  Anton Kolesov  <[hidden email]>

        * configure.tgt: ARC support for GNU/Linux.

The documentation parts are OK, with this single nit:

Please use "i.e.@:", so that the second period is not taken as ending
the sentence (which makes a difference in the printed version of the
manual).

Thanks.

Re: [PATCH v6 0/4] arc: Add GNU/Linux support

In reply to this post by Sourceware - gdb-patches mailing list
Friendly reminder for reviewing v6 of the patch series [1].

In general, backward compatibility has been added. Therefore,
previous reviewers only need to take a look at new changes:

gdb/NEWS:
- Added an entry for deprecating the old feature names.

arc-tdep.c:
- Added "ARC_{CORE,AUX}_V{1,2}_OBSOLETE_*" name variables.
- Introduced "find_obsolete_{core,aux}_names()" functions.
- Usage of those functions in "arc_tdesc_init()".


Cheers,
Shahab

Hi Shahab,

The only thing code-wise that changed between v5 and v6 is looking for obsolete features names?

If so, that LGTM (I didn't re-read the whole patch, just checked that and it looks reasonable)
with these nits fixed:

> -static const char *const aux_minimal_register_names[] = {
> -  "pc", "status32",
> +/* Obsolete feature names for backward compatibility.  */
> +static const char *ARC_CORE_V1_OBSOLETE_FEATURE_NAME
> +    = "org.gnu.gdb.arc.core.arcompact";
> +static const char *ARC_CORE_V2_OBSOLETE_FEATURE_NAME
> +    = "org.gnu.gdb.arc.core.v2";
> +static const char *ARC_CORE_V2_REDUCED_OBSOLETE_FEATURE_NAME
> +    = "org.gnu.gdb.arc.core-reduced.v2";
> +static const char *ARC_AUX_OBSOLETE_FEATURE_NAME
> +    = "org.gnu.gdb.arc.aux-minimal";

Should probably be two spaces for indentation here.

> +/* Look for obsolete core feature names in TDESC_DATA.  */
> +
> +static const struct tdesc_feature *
> +find_obsolete_core_names (const struct target_desc *tdesc)

The parameter name doesn't match the doc, TDESC_DATA -> TDESC.

[PUSHED 0/4] arc: Add GNU/Linux support

Sourceware - gdb-patches mailing list
In reply to this post by Sourceware - gdb-patches mailing list
From: Shahab Vahedi <[hidden email]>

This is a series of changes to enable debugging ARC targets that are
running on a native ARC GNU/Linux system.  Since this heavily relies
on XML target descriptions provided for different targets, that piece
of code has been refactored to accommodate flexible register support.

After this series, there will come patches that add support for
native ARC gdb/gdbserver.

v6: Add backward compatibility for obsolete feature names
 arc-tdep.c:
  - "find_obsolete_[core,aux]_names()" implemented
 gdb/NEWS:
  - Updated with information about these feature name changes.

v5: Changes per remarks of Simon [1] and on my own (documentation and tests)
 arc.h:
  - Made "reg_size" and "isa" constant in "arc_gdbarch_features".
 arc.c:
  - Fix some malformed indentations.
 arc-tdep.h:
  - Inclusion of "gdbarch.h" has its own patch now.
 arc-tdep.c
  - Use "nullptr" instead of "NULL".
  - Remove unnecessary "break"s after "return"s.
  - "determine_core_reg_feature_set" will assert if wrong input is given.
  - Removed dangling comment.
  - Replaced "const auto *" with "const auto" to be consistent.
  - in "arc_check_for_hw_loops()": No "nullptr" check for "aux_regset".
 arc-linux-tdep.c
  - Remove unnecessary empty lines.
  - Replace "breakpoint uses" with "breakpoints use" in a comment.
  - "return condition;" i.s.o. "if (condition) return true; else return false;"
 gdb.texinfo
  - Update documentation regarding the new feature files.
 arc-tdesc-cpu.xml
  - Use new feature names.

[1] Simon's remarks to v4 of the patches
https://sourceware.org/pipermail/gdb-patches/2020-July/170975.html
https://sourceware.org/pipermail/gdb-patches/2020-August/170993.html
https://sourceware.org/pipermail/gdb-patches/2020-August/170994.html

v4: Latest changes per remarks of Simon [2]
 arc-tdep.c
  - Surround "=" in 2 assignments with space.
  - Put the return type of "mach_type_to_arc_isa ()" on the first line.
  - Remove "inline" from "mach_type_to_arc_isa ()".
  - Add space between the "if" conditions for readability.
  - Use "featues.isa" instead of "features.reg_size" in one occurrence.
  - Make "arc_gdbarch_features_init" static
  - Rename "arc_gdbarch_features_init" to "arc_gdbarch_features_create".
  - Adapt "arc_gdbarch_features_create" to act as a constructor.
 arch/arc.c
  - Add a constructor for "arc_gdbarch_features".
  - Get rid of "ARC_ISA_NONE" now that there is a constructor.
 arch/arc.c
  - Use simple assignments (instead of append) for "architecture".
  - Use "string_sprintf ()".
  - Use "target_desc_up" in "arc_tdesc_cache" to avoid memory leakage.
 arc-linux-tdep.c
  - Two occurrences: compare "resolver.minsym" against "nullptr".
 

[2] [PATCH v3 1/3] arc: Add ARCv2 XML target along with refactoring
https://sourceware.org/pipermail/gdb-patches/2020-July/170427.html

v3: Changes after Simon's remarks:
The XML files have reduced to minimal comprehensible set.
The code is adjusted to work with new reg sets and be platform agnostic.

v2: Changes after Tom's remarks:
 arc-tdep.c
  - arc_tdesc_init(): Use "ARC_{R58,R59}_REGNUM" to index "core_regs[]".
  - arc_gdbarch_init(): Use "xfree ()" instead of "XDELETE ()"
  - arc_gdbarch_init(): return "nullptr" instead of "NULL".
  - Use explicit number evaluation, e.g: if (a & b) -> if ((a & b) != 0)
 arc-linux-tdep.c
  - Use true/false instead of TRUE/FALSE.
  - arc_linux_sw_breakpoint_from_kind (): Break long lines into two.
  - arc_linux_sw_breakpoint_from_kind (): Remove starting blank line.
  - Use explicit number evaluation, e.g: if (a & b) -> if ((a & b) != 0)
 gdb/configure.tgt
  - arc*-*-linux*): Remove "build_gdbserver=yes".
