I'm trying to use the Tracepoint feature within Eclipse Indigo (3.7) for remote debugging with GDB Automatic Remote Debugging Launcher. I've enabled traces within the preferences / c/c++ / debug / gdb and have set tracepoints and associated actions, however, when attached to the remote gdbserver the Trace Control icons remain disabled (all are grayed out).

My setup is that I'm running Eclipse Indigo on Linux 2.6.32-220.el6.x86_64 (uname -a). The Eclipse Debugger Remote Application launches "arm-linux-androideabi-gdb" version:
GNU gdb (GDB)
This GDB was configured as "--host=x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu --target=arm-elf-linux"
which connects via TCP to the remote gdbserver running on an ARM A8 (TI Davinci), which is running Android 4.0.3 ( on top of Linux 2.6.37 armv7l (uname -a).

The gdbserver version is:
GNU gdbserver (GDB)
This gdbserver was configured as "arm-linux-androideabi"
and the startup command used is: gdbserver --multi :10000 --attach <pid>, where <pid> is the process id of the process to be debugged.

If I execute "tstatus" from the Eclipse gdb terminal, the response is "Trace can not be run on this target".

Are tracepoints simply not supported on ARM architecture and / or Android OS? If tracepoints are supported in the noted setup then what am I missing?
