Well, of course there are lots of tools - commercial ones. See for
instance PowerTAP by Applied Microsystems (www.amc.com), Trace32 by
Lauterbach (www.lauterbach.de), visionPROBE by EST (www.estc.com) or
BlackBird by SDS (www.sdsi.com) [there are some other vendors as
well, and usually there is more than one solution from each of those
vendors]. Be prepared to hear prices in the 5...10 k$ range.
But I guess you are looking for a (cheap) hardware probe that
cooperates nicely with some of the common freeware debugging tools
like GDB? This is something I'm looking for, too...

With one of the above tools those things can be done. But I don't
know of a solution for the 860 or 8260 that does not take a few k$.

It is impractical for the standard to attempt to constrain the
behavior of code that does not obey the constraints of the standard.
