Fix AArch64 watchpoint handlers in NativeRegisterContextLinux_arm64

Authored by omjavaid on Aug 10 2015, 5:16 AM.



There were some bugs that needed to be fixed in watchpoint handling code on arm64.

Watchpoints were being written to all watchpoint registers and cache was not being maintained correctly.

This patch fixes up all these issues. Watchpoints now work on arm64 except that there is race condition which is not allowing lldb to step out of a watchpoint hit before we can continue again so inferior gets stuck at that point. Manually disabling the watchpoint then issuing a step and then enabling the watchpoint again fixes shows that watchpoints are being installed and removed correctly.

Generally looks good to me. I am happy to push the 2 cleanup change to a separate CL but please check that the read/write flag calculation is correct.


You use this pattern several times in this class. It would be nice if you can move it out to a separate function to avoid code duplication.


I think this expression is incorrect. Based on I don't see why you need this at all and if watch_flags==0x3 then it will set watch_flags to 0x7 what looks wrong for me.


The 0/1 for the type isn't too descriptive. Please use an enum here (or the NT_ARM_HW_WATCH/NT_ARM_HW_BREAK constants)

I will defer to Tamas Berghammer since I have no expertise is arm64 watchpoints.
