	There is no kcore (kernel core) target for NetBSD/arm32's gdb.

	Attempt to examine data structures on a live kernel using
	a full debugging symbols kernel, /dev/mem, and gdb.  Drop
	jaw in horror.

	None provided.

NetBSD/arm32 support is a recent addition to the in-tree GDB sources. 
As yet an implementation of armnbsd-nat.c has not been included to provide 
kcore support. An impllementation of armnbsd-nat.c is currently being tested.

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

port-arm-maintainer is the correct person for ARM bugs now.
