+Note: if you do not specify a file to be used, gdb-multiarch won't be able to
+detect the architecture automatically and the target command will fail. In that
+case, you can set the architecture using:
+(gdb) set arch arm
+(gdb) set gnutarget elf32-littlearm
 Before continuing the execution, add a breakpoint on
 \code{watchdog_set_drvdata()} using the \code{break} GDB command and then
 continue the execution using the continue \code{command}
