I notice that a 32 bit process running on a 64 bit kernel is expected to know that it should fill in mips64_watch_regs --- even though it is running against a 32 bit ABI. Is this an oversight, or am I missing something ?It is intentional.Oh I see ... I have to call PTRACE_SET_WATCH_REGS first in order to figure out whether the kernel is expecting me to use pt_watch_style_mips32 or pt_watch_style_mips64.
That would be PTRACE_GET_WATCH_REGS. It will tell you the width of the registers as well as how many are available (in the num_valid field) and the properties of each (in the watch_masks fields).
Fill in watchlo and watchhi, write them back with PTRACE_SET_WATCH_REGS, then sit back and wait for SIGTRAP.
