I want to use your gdb stubs and (eventually) cexp, but I'm using a new
BSP for the Virtex-4 PowerPC. This BSP is based on the gen405, which
(still) uses the "old exceptions" model. Sure enough, your agent won't
compile for my BSP. So, what would be involved in making it work with
"old exceptions"? Or should I instead change the BSP to "new exceptions"?
