Ah, nice. So you support 64 bit debuggers debugging 32 bit processes, right?

From what I can tell, there is no support for 32 bit processes debugging
64 bit ones. Is that something you plan to add in the future, or do you
consider that out of scope? In either case, a comment would be helpful.

Is there a reaons why these are not regsets but have their own ptrace
commands? I believe new architectures should generally not add ptrace
commands any more.
