#2001 closed defect (fixed)

mdump length argument broken + medit NULL pointer problem

(from Werner Almesberger)

This patch fixes the "mdump" and "medit" shell commands:

  • "mdump" got the length argument wrong and would only produce useful output if it was omitted.
  • "medit" overran the argument list, choking on the NULL pointer following the last argument.

Note that "medit" still only does byte-sized accesses, which limits
its usefulness on most systems.

Resolution: fixed

I should have noted that the byte/word/long issue with the dump commands was addressed by PR 2012.
