Thanks for the hint,
this doesn't fix it however, gregset_t and fpregset_t are also used in
the generic file core-regset.c
I'm now buidling with them changed to elf_Xregset too.

If this works I'll send a patch over the list, and bugzilla it.


Okay, the patch works, here is the bugzilla entry. The patch attached
replaces the fpregset patch, it is a generic regset patch fixing other
regset problems too.

It might be worth it todo one more check for regset_t 's and replace all
these by elf_regset_t's. I did this, but maybe I overlooked something,
anyways this one works for me.
