1. NAME

sleeping_thread_to_gdb_regs - Convert ptrace regs to GDB regs

2. SYNOPSIS

void sleeping_thread_to_gdb_regs(unsigned long *  gdb_regs , struct task_struct *  p );

3. ARGUMENTS

gdb_regs
    A pointer to hold the registers in the order GDB wants.

p
    The struct task_struct of the desired process.

4. DESCRIPTION

Convert the register values of the sleeping process in p to the format that GDB expects. This function is called when kgdb does not have access to the struct pt_regs and therefore it should fill the gdb registers gdb_regs with what has been saved in struct thread_struct thread field during switch_to.
