Are rtems-gdb-macros-4.11 supposed to work?

Probably the helper macros are outdated. 
The global "_Thread_Executing" was replaced with a different mechanism that would more easily support multiprocessor systems. 

Try replacing "_Thread_Executing" with "_Per_CPU_Information.executing"

I have trouble using the RTEMS helper macros for gdb getting:

(gdb) rtems_tasks
No symbol "_Thread_Executing" in current context.

I just downloaded the current version of


But it has the same problem.

Is this a known problem or am I doing something wrong?  How can I fix it?
