kdb: core for kgdb back end (1 of 2)
This patch contains only the kdb core. Because the change set was large, it was split. The next patch in the series includes the instrumentation into the core kernel which are mainly helper functions for kdb. This work is directly derived from kdb v4.4 found at: ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/kdb/download/v4.4/ The kdb internals have been re-organized to make them mostly platform independent and to connect everything to the debug core which is used by gdbstub (which has long been known as kgdb). The original version of kdb was 58,000 lines worth of changes to support x86. From that implementation only the kdb shell, and basic commands for memory access, runcontrol, lsmod, and dmesg where carried forward. This is a generic implementation which aims to cover all the current architectures using the kgdb core: ppc, arm, x86, mips, sparc, sh and blackfin. More archictectures can be added by implementing the architecture specific kgdb functions.
