parentscripts/gdb: add documentation example for radix tree (diff)
scripts/gdb: add lx_thread_info_by_pid helper
The tasks module already provides helpers to find the task struct by pid, and the thread_info by task struct; however this is cumbersome to utilise on the gdb commandline. Wrap these two functionalities together in an extra single helper to allow exploring the thread info, from a PID value Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/dadc5667f053ec811eb3e3033d99d937fedbc93b.1462865983.git.jan.kiszka@siemens.com Signed-off-by: Kieran Bingham <kieran.bingham@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Jan Kiszka <jan.kiszka@siemens.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
