Thanks for the pointer. Something like the following does accomplish its task w.r.t. GDB, but there are some TODO items. It might help to compare what the Linux kernel is doing; »git grep --cached -i dr6 -- arch/x86/« or similar. diff -ru gnumach-1.4.orig/i386/i386/trap.c gnumach-1.4/i386/i386/trap.c --- gnumach-1.4.orig/i386/i386/trap.c 2013-09-27 08:05:57.000000000 +0200 +++ gnumach-1.4/i386/i386/trap.c 2014-09-16 10:45:58.000000000 +0200 @@ -404,6 +404,17 @@ return 0; } #endif + + /* Make the content of the debug status register (DR6) + available to user space. */ + /* TODO: Do we have to sanitize its content?
