gdb was somewhat working on ia64 for Gentoo. strace was the main
impacted here.

But I did not try anything complicated recently. Anything specific that
breaks for you?

$ uname -r
(even without the patches above)

$ cat c.c
int main(){}
$ gcc c.c -o a -ggdb3
$ gdb --quiet ./a
Reading symbols from ./a...
(gdb) start
Temporary breakpoint 1 at 0x7f2: file c.c, line 1.
Starting program: /home/slyfox/a
Failed to read a valid object file image from memory.

Temporary breakpoint 1, main () at c.c:1
1 int main(){}
(gdb) disassemble
Dump of assembler code for function main:

End of assembler dump.
(gdb) break *0x2000000800000800
Breakpoint 2 at 0x2000000800000800: file c.c, line 1.
(gdb) continue

Breakpoint 2, 0x2000000800000800 in main () at c.c:1
1 int main(){}

Looks ok for minor stuff.

v5.10 seems to boot off hpsa just fine without extra patches:
14:01.0 RAID bus controller: Hewlett-Packard Company Smart Array P600
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company 3 Gb/s SAS RAID
Kernel driver in use: hpsa

v5.11 does not boot yet. Kernel does not see some files while boots after init is
started (but I'm not sure it's a block device problem). Bisecting now why.
