It's well known that one cannot use bochs debugger to see paging mappings for 64bit addresses. Could you please finally add it?

  • What do you mean ?

    Type 'page <addr>' in debugger and you will get the full mapping together with extra info.

    You also have SF patch for debugger which improves 'info tab' but it is unefficient. The problem that could be to much pages in long mode so creating a list of them culd take a lot of time and memory.

    Hey, when one issues "info tab", he expects to see entire mapping, right? Speed of this command shouldn't be argument for not implementing it properly; sometimes you need to check all mappings, debugging own paging code - and you cannot, because... "info tab" is limited, because it would be "slow"? Most important factor when evaluating debugging features is usefulness, not speed...

    And, hmm, I didn't notice that patch before, I will give it a shot...
