Oops. Should have read it a bit more carefully, that way I, too, would see
that proc has a p_sigacts pointing into user's u_sigacts...
Actually, you're right. B-)
I still don't know of any code in GDB to support that, though, and we
could just as easily provide another ptrace(2) function to get that
Another thing (suggested by Roland) that would be useful is to have a
set of signals which are passed directly to the child without telling
the debugger about it. This would be particularly useful for programs
that use SIGIO (like Emacs).
Did I hear you volunteer?
