    Subject[PATCH 0/2] Fix KGDB to work with CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA using kprobe API
    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.


    Jason Wessel (2):
    kgdb,debug_core: pass the breakpoint struct instead of address and memory
    kgdb,debug_core,kgdbts: End DEBUG_RODATA limitation using kprobe breakpoints
