Native register descriptions in LLDB specify lldb register numbers in value_regs and invalidate_regs lists. These register numbers may not match with Process gdb-remote register numbers which are generated through native process by counting all registers in its register sets.

It was coincidentally not causing any problems as we never came across a native target with dynamically changing register sets and register numbers generated by counter matched with LLDB native register numbers. This came up while testing target AArch64 SVE which can choose register sets based on underlying hardware.

This patch fixes this behavior and tries to send lldb register number as extra information in registerinfo and targetxml packets. This patch also updates Read/Write RegisterBytes function of process gdb-remote to look for LLDB register numbers if they are available.

I have tested this on arm, aarch64, x86_64.
