This is not easy on a RPi. The JTAG signals are not available on a
single connector such as the standard ARM 20pin one. The RPi assumes you
have a working Linux kernel and you play in user land.

The best idea I can come up with for a RPi is a boot type piece of code
that uses the OTG USB port as a slave USB serial device with the GDB
protocol. There was a GitHub project with something but I never looked
any further. Alan do you remember the link ?
