I am facing problem in case of branch delay instruction.
When single stepping is done on a copied page,for an uncondition jump
instruction to the given target address ( e.g j, jal ),
epc jumps to the target address with respect to current address,
And if I tried to put break point over there....it gives error as
"CPU 0 Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual
address c005eeb8, epc == c005eeb8"
Can anybody knows...how to solve this problem..?

Instead of break 0, can I use Trap Exception 'Tr' with the special
case for single step BRK_SSTEPBP (break 5)
E.g : teq rs,rt,code
which is nothing but :

Thanks,I think i will do that
