Write to extra (FP, etc) registers from GDB
The extra registers added in my previous commit can now be modified from within GDB. Since the ST-LINK does not support accessing these registers, a workaround was used from reading an writing to them. That is, the Debug Core Register Selector Register (DCRSR) can be written with the register requested, and it will be read/written to/from the Debug Core Register Data Register (DCRDR). The standard ST-LINK memory access functions are used to make these accesses. A target descriptor XML file is sent to GDB from the server, which tells GDB which registers exist on the target. This is only supported for the STM32F4, and has only been tested on the STM32F4DISCOVERY. I tested st-util on an STM32L-DISCOVERY and my changes did not seem to interfere with its operation.
