I also considered licensing issues around copying this chunk but found GDB also copied this chunk of linux defines into its sources. I think its part of linux headers with license to freely use these headers in client programs. Do you know any licensing expert who can give us feedback on this patch? The only reason we have to include these headers here is that on older sysroots AArch64 compiler we wont be able to compile this code as they dont have these headers included so far but newer version do include these headers by default.

As for the test coverage I am working on a follow up to this patch that will include corefile support I hope we ll be able to test major portion of this patch with that support.
