Again, please do not top post.

This is needed as gdbserver code expects the register pc as "pc" instead of "rpc" for baremetel. The microblaze-linux-core.xml is changed from "rpc" to "pc" for gdbserver code to work.

>>What are the results of running the gdb regression test suite using gdbserver on the target after applying this patch?
This patch requires the below patches which are already sent to FSF to be applied for the expected results with gdb regression testsuite.
The details and the related reasons are given below.
[Patch, microblaze] Add little-endian breakpoint.
[Patch, microblaze]: Add support of microblaze software single stepping
The above patches were already sent to FSF and are yet to be applied.
[Patch,microblaze]: Add support linux_memory_remove_breakpoints.
As suggested by Joel to not to mix the gdbserver patch with gdb patch, I will be sending the patch "Add Support linux_memory_remove_breakpoints" separately.
Without the above patches and running the gdb regression testsuite(gdb.base) gives bad testsuite results.
Hence the gdb testsuite is stopped in between.
warning: Remote failure reply: E01
Ignoring packet error, continuing...
FAIL: gdb.base/annota1.exp: print array (timeout)
Due to this error the subsequent testcases fails and following results were obtained.
=== gdb Summary ===
# of expected passes 67
# of unexpected failures 106
# of expected failures 1
# of unresolved testcases 6
# of untested testcases 4
# of unsupported tests 96
With the above mentioned gdb patches and the gdbserver patch, below are the results. All the executables are little endian binaries compiled with microblazeel-xilinux-linux-gnu.
=== gdb Summary ===
# of expected passes 8146
# of unexpected failures 2470
# of unexpected successes 2
# of expected failures 6
# of known failures 21
# of unresolved testcases 28
# of untested testcases 44
# of unsupported tests 125
