There are indeed patches.  The best place I can point you at is the
MontaVista ftp site.  Grab the source package for gdb,
the patches should be in there and their should be a starting point for
you to play with.

(the FTP site also has precompiled stuff, but unless you are using our
tools, it's better for you to recompile.)
