Re: [PATCHv2,Hurd] Add hardware watch support


Samuel,

I only have small comments.

First, the ChangeLog entry:

Missing period at the end of this sentence.

It looks like this is improperly indented (spaces instead of tabs?).

I would swap the i386_DEBUG_STATE and _initialize_i386gnu_nat.
You're inside _initialize_i386gnu_nat, not the other around.

Use...

/* See gnu-nat.h.  */

... instead.  This is a fairly trivial comment in this case, so
not biggie, but the idea is that want to avoid duplicating
documentation in order to avoid having one of them being out
of sync.

And please also make sure to always have an empty line before
function documentation and start of implementation.

Suggest:

/* Call F for every thread in inferior INF.  */

This addresses two issues: "Iterate F" sounds odd, but perhaps
that's because English is not my native language; but also,
it also documents what INF is.

The documentation seems out of sync with the function's prototype.

Nested functions are not allowed. We'd like GCC to remain
compilable using non-GCC C90 compilers.

Same here, no nested function, please.
