Re: [Patch,Microblaze]: Added Break Handler Support

Hello Michael:

The following patch is to handle Software and Hardware breaks in Microblaze Architecture.
Deja GNU testcase does not have any regressions and the testcase attached passes through.
Review comments are incorporated.

Okay for trunk?

Just saying OK would only be appropriate if you had write access to the repository.

Added Break Handler support to incorporate the hardware and software break. The Break Handler routine
will be generating the rtbd instruction. At the call point where the software breaks are generated with
the instruction brki with register operand as r16.

* config/microblaze/microblaze.c
    (microblaze_break_function_p,microblaze_is_break_handler) : New

* config/microblaze/microblaze.h (BREAK_HANDLER_NAME) : New macro

* config/microblaze/ :
   Extended support for generation of brki instruction and rtbd instruction.

A better ChangeLog entry is
* config/microblaze/ (*<optab>,<optab>_internal):
    Add microblaze_is_break_handler () test.

Give specifics, naming functions, rather than making general comments.
As the ChangeLog standard says:
  Itâs important to name the changed function or variable in full.
  Donât abbreviate function or variable names, and donât combine them.
  Subsequent maintainers will often search for a function name to find
  all the change log entries that pertain to it; if you abbreviate the
  name, they wonât find it when they search.

Mention each place where there are changes.  There should be a ChangeLog
entry for each non-trivial change.

Your patch made four significant changes to
There appear to be several changes in microblaze.c, not just the definition
of the new functions as shown in your entry.

* config/microblaze/microblaze-protos.h
    (microblaze_break_function_p,microblaze_is_break_handler) : New Declaration.

* testsuite/ : New.

Thanks for the test case.

As mentioned previously, add documentation for _break_handler.
