sleeping_thread_to_gdb_regs: Convert ptrace regs to GDB regs
sleeping_thread_to_gdb_regs - Convert ptrace regs to GDB regs
void sleeping_thread_to_gdb_regs(unsigned long
*gdb_regs, struct task_struct *p);
- A pointer to hold the registers in the order GDB wants.
- The struct task_struct of the desired process.
Convert the register values of the sleeping process in p to the format that GDB expects. This function is called when kgdb does not have access to the struct pt_regs and therefore it should fill the gdb registers gdb_regs with what has been saved in struct thread_struct thread field during switch_to.
