I told Alan Modra that I'd take the changes off his hands and put the
pressure forward to get changes done for an upstream merge. All I've
done so far is looked at the patches and kept abreast of gdb
development... with the occasional push to other developers with more
free time. So I've been rather lax in my duties :(

The problem is that upstream has changed soo much that it requires a
rework of the current port. I've discussed this with you guys already...
and I admit that our current port is a hack (e.g. cut'n'paste+hack).

I recommend to the ESIEE team that they try hard to get HPPA into
upstream gdb.
