Hi Wei,

Thanks testing the series.

This is not yet in, so it might be useful to point to the series that
adds this:

Hmm, I don't see this function defined in arch/arm64/kernel/kgdb.c in
v5.0-rc*. Was it removed? or is that something in your local tree.

Seeing we introduce the daifflags functions, with the relation described
at the top of arch/arm64/include/asm/daifflags.h. I think just calling
local_irq_enable() might not comply with this, as PSR.I would be clear
while PSR.D is set.

Maybe it should be using:

local_daif_restore(DAIF_PROCCTX);

> smp_call_function(kgdb_call_nmi_hook, NULL, 0);
> local_irq_disable();

and here
local_daif_mask();

Although I'd like to understand what you are applying the pseudo-NMI
series on first.

This is not in mainline, in v5.0-rc1 there is:

local_daif_restore(DAIF_PROCCTX);

Which my series updates to modify both DAIF and PMR if needed.

So you wouldn't need to have the gic_arch_enable_irqs().

Same here.
