System: NetBSD 1.1B NetBSD 1.1B (RHIANNON) #27: Sat Apr 27 17:48:59 EDT 1996 amiga
Architecture: amiga


	When the kernel config file includes options KGDB, the kernel 
build fails because arch/amiga/dev/ser.c tries to include 
the file machine/remote-sl.h, which does not exist.


	Add options KGDB to your config, try to build a kernel, and watch 
it fail.

        Write the needed machine/remote-sl.h file... ;-)

This PR is the responsibility of the portmaster, 
not the GNATS database administrator.

There's no provision for KGDB in src/sys/arch/amiga/conf as of today, 
so this may or may not work.  The issue would then be to *add* proper 
kgdb support to port-amiga.

Unsuspend this - it is not waiting on any external entity.

Upon review:
  - this still happens
  - there's a remote-sl.h in x68k/include (and an identical copy in sparc)
    that one might be able to steal from
  - the KGDB support in ser.c is clearly at most partial
  - so even with remote-sl.h it still won't work (if you comment out the
    include, kgdb_m68k.c doesn't compile with T_SSIR missing)
  - conclusion: there is no KGDB support in port-amiga yet

Given the age of the hardware, the difficulty of testing without hardware
access, and the fact that nobody's taken the time to work on KGDB for amiga
in the past twenty years, I think the conclusion is WONTFIX. If anyone
wants to prepare patches, though, by all means send them along.
