That still lacks what Andy requested quite some time ago in the V8 thread:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/034aaf3a-a93d-ec03-0bbd-068e1905b774@kernel.org/

"I also think that, before this series can have my ack, it needs an
actual gdb maintainer to chime in, publicly, and state that they have
thought about and tested the ABI changes and that gdb still works on
patched kernels with and without FSGSBASE enabled. I realize that there
were all kinds of discussions, but they were all quite theoretical, and
I think that the actual patches need to be considered by people who
understand the concerns. Specific test cases would be nice, too."

What's the state of this?

Thanks,
