Event Timeline

I know GDB 9 is released and I have a branch of kgdb based on the 9.x branch but wanted to get these in first before doing a patch to update to 9.1.

The arm change is just a compiler warning fix for an unused variable.

Oops, we don't need this bit (though it doesn't hurt).

actually it hurts. Can you please revert it?

PREFIX is the prefix for the ports. This setting is designed for the base.
Practically, we are moving the debug dir from /usr/lib/debug , where the base's debug symbols are stored to /usr/local/lib/debug that do not exist.

ups, sorry, I'm wrong, you're adding it, not changing it.
Good to me
