Re: [PATCH] Remove some obfuscation from ${arch}_skip_prologue functions

Nowadays we have:

  if (find_pc_partial_function (pc, NULL, &func_addr, NULL))
      CORE_ADDR post_prologue_pc
	= skip_prologue_using_sal (gdbarch, func_addr);

      if (post_prologue_pc != 0)
	return max (pc, post_prologue_pc);

so your statement is valid if PC equals to FUNC_ADDR.  I don't have a
case that PC and FUNC_ADDR are different, but I'd like to add an assert
to check this, in each target's implementation of skip_prologue hook, or
in the callers of gdbarch_skip_prologue, something like:

  if (find_pc_partial_function (pc, NULL, &func_addr, NULL))
    gdb_assert (pc == func_addr);

Note that this assert is triggered on arm in
gdb.cp/re-set-overloaded.exp, that is PC is [1] but FUNC_ADDR is [2].

(gdb) disassemble _ZN1CC1Ei
Dump of assembler code for function _ZN1CC1Ev:

   0x00000910 <+4>:     add     r12, r12, pc
   0x00000914 <+8>:     bx      r12
   0x00000918 <+12>:                    ; <UNDEFINED> instruction: 0xffffffc5
   0x0000091c <+0>:     ldr     r12, [pc, #4]   ; 0x928 <_ZN1CC1Ei+12>   <- [1]
   0x00000920 <+4>:     add     r12, r12, pc

AFAICS, PC is still the function address but find_pc_partial_function
computes the FUNC_ADDR incorrectly and it is nothing wrong about your

I tested your patch on nios2-linux, and no regression is found.


My c6x board is dead in data center, so I can't test this patch for it.
