New files. This manual was ritten by Eric Valette <valette@…>
and Emmanuel Raguet <raguet@…>. It was submitted in LaTeX
and converted to Texinfo by Joel. At this point, the figures are
largely ignored except to put in an example block to show they are
missing.

The Makefile should be just enough to produce output with no links between
chapters.

11@chapter Conclusion
12
13In this document we have presented how we envisage to add remote debugging facilities
14to RTEMS by implementing a remote debugger daemon for GDB. As any debug implemented
15in software, it will have limitation but we are confident that most of them
16can be removed by adding separate software components dedicated to debug activity.
17We must keep in mind that even with this approach, no software will enable the
18debug of code with interrupt entirely masked at processor level and that In
19Circuit Emulator (ICE) or use of BDM extension on the target board are the ultimate
20way to really debug any portion of an RTOS. BDM support in GDB is still weak
21but people are working on it and we may get something better in a near future.
