8 Bit Mem read with gdb

Hello All,

This is regarding PowerPC 8260 gdb.

My question is how do I tell gdb to read a byte only  while reading
0xfff00100..0xfff00500 address range.
While  checking mem I use  "x /b  0xfff00100" and it works fine , but while
I do unassamble from this address it tries to read a word from this
location, and as a result the first byte is repeated 4 times.It is 8 bit
wide flash mem,so
you cant read a word at a time.

So I want to tell gdb to do byte wide reading while doing unassambling and
all other operations.

Please reply me personally, I am not on gdb mailing list.
