:!: note that the current svd files from freescale (and other vendors) do *not* contain the arm core registers (nvic, etc). according to arm, this ‘intentional’ as they expect the debugger to give native access to the arm core registers, and not to duplicate content in the svd files. i hope this will change soon (e.g. the svd files be able to reference the core registers somehow), as otherwise svd files are somewhat limited. or has anyone svd files for the arm core registers so the community can benefit from it?
happy viewing :-)
