Subject[PATCH 13/25] kgdb: gdb "monitor" -> kdb passthrough
Date
One of the driving forces behind integrating another front end (kdb)
to the debug core is to allow front end commands to be accessible via
gdb's monitor command. It is true that you could write gdb macros to
get certain data, but you may want to just use gdb to access the
commands that are available in the kdb front end.

This patch implements the Rcmd gdb stub packet. In gdb you access
this with the "monitor" command. For instance you could type "monitor
help", "monitor lsmod" or "monitor ps A" etc...

There is no error checking or command restrictions on what you can and
cannot access at this point. Doing something like trying to set
breakpoints with the monitor command is going to cause nothing but
problems. Perhaps in the future only the commands that are actually
known to work with the gdb monitor command will be available.
