SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/4] kgdb: x86: Detach gdb if machine shuts down or reboots

We have long had an out of tree patch which hooked the reboot notifier, vs adding call backs to the actual reboot functions. It seems at first glance that all of cases that Jan probably cares about are actually caught by the reboot notifier.

I attached the patch I am referencing, and perhaps Jan can try it out. It applies on top of Jan's series at the moment.

A few more comments first.

If we do have to add callbacks at the arch level, my preference is to pass the stop code like you would have received in the reboot notifier. Specifically something like: gdbstub_exit(SYS_RESTART).

Similarly gdbstub_exit(SYS_HALT) and so on.

Jan, what do you think about trying the reboot notifier version?

Thanks,
Jason.

Subject: [PATCH] kgdb,debug-core,gdbstub: Hook the reboot notifier for debugger detach

The gdbstub and kdb should get detached if the system is rebooting.
Calling gdbstub_exit() will set the proper debug core state and send a
message to any debugger that is connected to correctly detach.

An attached debugger will receive the exit code from
include/linux/reboot.h based on SYS_HALT, SYS_REBOOT, etc...
