#include "pub_tool_basics.h" // VG_ macro
// PURPOSE: This module provides the support to have a gdb
// connecting to a valgrind process using remote gdb protocol. It provides
// * A function to allow a tool (or the valgrind core) to
// wait for a gdb to connect and then handle gdb commands.
// Typically, this can be used to let the user debug the process
// when valgrind reports an error.
// * A function allowing to instrument the code to support gdb breakpoints.
// * A function allowing the tool to support watchpoints.
// * A utility function to help implementing the processing of the
// gdb_monitor_command strings.
// Function to be used by tool or coregrind to allow a gdb to connect
// to this process.
// Calling VG_(gdbserver) with tid > 0 means to let a debugger attach
// to the valgrind process. gdbserver will report to gdb that the
// process stopped in thread tid.
// Calling VG_(gdbserver) with tid == 0 indicates to close
// the connection with GDB (if still open) and stop gdbserver.
extern void VG_(gdbserver) ( ThreadId tid );
/* VG_(dyn_vgdb_error) gets its initial value from
VG_(clo_vgdb_error). It can be changed after initial command
processing in order to enable/disable the call to VG_(gdbserver) in
m_errormgr.c. The main reasons to change the below is either
because the user updates it via a monitor command or to
(temporarily) avoid calling gdbserver for error reporting during
monitor command handling.

/* defines the various kinds of breakpoints that gdbserver
might ask to insert/remove. Note that the below matches
the gdbserver protocol definition. The level of support
of the various breakpoint kinds depends on the tool.
For the moment, it is unclear how a tool would implement
hardware_breakpoint in valgrind :).
software_breakpoint implies some (small) specific
instrumentation to be done for gdbserver. This instrumentation
is implemented for all tools in m_translate.c.
write/read/access watchpoints can only be done by tools
which are maintaining some notion of address accessibility
as part of their instrumentation. watchpoints can then
be done by marking the watched address(es) as not accessible.
But instead of giving back an error (or whatever the tool
wants to do with unaccessible mechanism), the tool must then
just call gdbserver. See memcheck for an example of reusing
accessibility for watchpoint support.

gdbserver for write or read or access.
In addition, VG_(is_watched) will invoke gdbserver if
the access provided by the tool matches the watchpoint kind.
For this, the tool must pass the kind of access it has detected:
write_watchpoint indicates the tool has detected a write
read_watchpoint indicates the tool has detected a read
access_watchpoint indicates the tool has detected an access but does
not know if this is a read or a write

// or not watched anymore (! insert).

// The tool can use VG_(is_watched) to verify if an
// access to an Addr is in one of the watched intervals.
// Must return True if the watchpoint has been properly inserted or
// removed. False if not supported.
// Note that an address can only be watched for a single kind.
// The tool must be ready to be called successively with
// multiple kinds for the same addr and len and with
// different kinds. The last kind must replace the previous values.
// Behaviour with multiple watches having overlapping addr+len
// is undefined.

// The output of VG_(gdb_printf) is given to gdb/vgdb. The only case
// in which this output is not given to gdb/vgdb is when the connection
// with gdb/vgdb has been lost : in such a case, output is written
// to the valgrind log output.
// To produce some output which is subject to user output control via
// monitor command v.set gdb_output or mixed output, use VG_(printf)
// or VG_(umsg) or similar.
// Typically, VG_(gdb_printf) has to be used when there is no point
// having this output in the output log of Valgrind. Examples
// is the monitor help output, or if vgdb is used to implement
// 'tool control scripts' such as callgrind_control.
