Hi Eran,

I got the same when I try to debug a _Linux_ application on Linux running 
on non-PC CPU. Seems like only 'MacOSX and Linux' on 'i686 and x86_64' are 
properly supported. Problem was already described in the 
message here: http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.debugging.lldb.devel/3530

I'd love to try and extend lldb support to Linux on AArch64, although 
cross-compilation comes with its own struggles that I need to deal with 

I guess woriking out this kind of support for Windows on PC should not be
