Subject[PATCH 7/7] kgdb: Make mem access function weak in kgdb.c andkgdb.h
Date
From: Sonic Zhang <sonic.adi@gmail.com>

L1 instruction memory and MMR memory on blackfin can not be accessed by
common functions probe_kernel_read() and probe_kernel_write().
Blackfin asks for 2/4 byte align access to MMR memory and DMA access to
L1 instruction memory. These functions need to be reimplemented in
architecture specific kgdb.c. Update documentation and prototypes as
well.
