ptrace: Add support for generic PTRACE_GETREGSET/PTRACE_SETREGSET
Generic support for PTRACE_GETREGSET/PTRACE_SETREGSET commands which export the regsets supported by each architecture using the correponding NT_* types. These NT_* types are already part of the userland ABI, used in representing the architecture specific register sets as different NOTES in an ELF core file. 'addr' parameter for the ptrace system call encode the REGSET type (using the corresppnding NT_* type) and the 'data' parameter points to the struct iovec having the user buffer and the length of that buffer. struct iovec iov = { buf, len}; ret = ptrace(PTRACE_GETREGSET/PTRACE_SETREGSET, pid, NT_XXX_TYPE, &iov); On successful completion, iov.len will be updated by the kernel specifying how much the kernel has written/read to/from the user's iov.buf. x86 extended state registers are primarily exported using this interface.
