[PATCH 11/13] kgdb: Add the ability to schedule a breakpoint via a tasklet

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Some kgdb I/O modules require the ability to create a breakpoint
tasklet, such as kgdboc and external modules such as kgdboe.  The
breakpoint tasklet is used as an asynchronous entry point into the
debugger which will have a different function scope than the current
execution path where it might not be safe to have an inline breakpoint
inside the kgdb I/O driver.
