Mark, thanks for pointing this out. If we want to use PTRACE_GETDSBT
here, we should include "asm/ptrace.h" in linux-low.c, which I am
hesitant to do. Current convention in linux-low.c, AFAICT, is about
target-independent code, and so "asm/ptrace.h" is not included. I don't
want to break this convention to include "asm/ptrace.h", but I am not
insist on this. If you believe it is safe to include "asm/ptrace.h", I
am fine with it.
