And, if that's the case, I'm wondering if there's a way to reflect this static-ness in the code. For example, by doing this setup in the constructor, instead of a late `ConfigureRegisterInfos` call. IIRC, the register contexts are created when the thread is stopped, so it should be possible to fetch the information about supported registers quite early.

Yes that is doable. I ll move ConfigureRegisterInfos part into constructor.
