scripts/gdb: provide linux constants
Some macro's and defines are needed when parsing memory, and without compiling the kernel as -g3 they are not available in the debug-symbols. We use the pre-processor here to extract constants to a dedicated module for the linux debugger extensions Top level Kbuild is used to call in and generate the constants file, while maintaining dependencies on autogenerated files in include/generated Link: Signed-off-by: Kieran Bingham <> Signed-off-by: Jan Kiszka <> Cc: Michal Marek <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
