Subject[PATCH 0/2] Fix KGDB to work with CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA using kprobe API
Date
The inability to use software breakpoints on a kernel built with
CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA has been a problem for quite a few years. The
kprobes API has been working around this limitation for a long
time. This patch set changes the debug_core to use the kprobe
breakpoint API directly for a kernel compiled with CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA.

Comments are welcome of course.

Thanks,
Jason.
