Why gdb on 8.99.12 creates two read/execute segments in debuggable process address space


NetBSD 8.99.12. Native gdb8 and gdb7 from pkgsrc.

According two '/proc/<PID>/maps' after 'gdb --pid <PID>', the process <PID> have two additional segments 
in address space with R and X flags set. These two segments belong to "/lib/" section.

Does any one know why this happens? I don't remember about NetBSD-7 but I didn't see
such things on NetBSD6 and earlier.
Linux also does not create them.
