/* A program space represents a symbolic view of an address space.
Roughly speaking, it holds all the data associated with a
non-running-yet program (main executable, main symbols), and when
an inferior is running and is bound to it, includes the list of its
mapped in shared libraries.
In the traditional debugging scenario, there's a 1-1 correspondence
among program spaces, inferiors and address spaces, like so:
pspace1 (prog1) <--> inf1(pid1) <--> aspace1
In the case of debugging more than one traditional unix process or
program, we still have:
| pspace1 (prog1) | inf1(pid1) | aspace1 |
| pspace2 (prog1) | no inf yet | aspace2 |
| pspace3 (prog2) | inf2(pid2) | aspace3 |
In the former example, if inf1 forks (and GDB stays attached to
both processes), the new child will have its own program and
address spaces. Like so:
| pspace1 (prog1) | inf1(pid1) | aspace1 |
| pspace2 (prog1) | inf2(pid2) | aspace2 |
However, had inf1 from the latter case vforked instead, it would
share the program and address spaces with its parent, until it
execs or exits, like so:
| pspace1 (prog1) | inf1(pid1) | aspace1 |
| | inf2(pid2) | |
When the vfork child execs, it is finally given new program and
address spaces.
| pspace1 (prog1) | inf1(pid1) | aspace1 |
| pspace2 (prog1) | inf2(pid2) | aspace2 |
There are targets where the OS (if any) doesn't provide memory
management or VM protection, where all inferiors share the same
address space --- e.g. uClinux. GDB models this by having all
inferiors share the same address space, but, giving each its own
program space, like so:
| pspace1 (prog1) | inf1(pid1) | |
|-----------------+------------+ |
| pspace2 (prog1) | inf2(pid2) | aspace1 |
|-----------------+------------+ |
| pspace3 (prog2) | inf3(pid3) | |
The address space sharing matters for run control and breakpoints
management. E.g., did we just hit a known breakpoint that we need
to step over? Is this breakpoint a duplicate of this other one, or
do I need to insert a trap?
Then, there are targets where all symbols look the same for all
inferiors, although each has its own address space, as e.g.,
Ericsson DICOS. In such case, the model is:
| | inf1(pid1) | aspace1 |
| +------------+---------|
| pspace | inf2(pid2) | aspace2 |
| +------------+---------|
| | inf3(pid3) | aspace3 |
Note however, that the DICOS debug API takes care of making GDB
believe that breakpoints are "global". That is, although each
process does have its own private copy of data symbols (just like a
bunch of forks), to the breakpoints module, all processes share a
single address space, so all breakpoints set at the same address
are duplicates of each other, even breakpoints set in the data
space (e.g., call dummy breakpoints placed on stack). This allows
a simplification in the spaces implementation: we avoid caring for
a many-many links between address and program spaces. Either
there's a single address space bound to the program space
(traditional unix/uClinux), or, in the DICOS case, the address
space bound to the program space is mostly ignored. */
