Debugging NuttX on Atmel SAM L21 microcontroller with J-Link programmer

Run JLink GDB server this way:

$ JLinkGDBServer -device ATSAML21J18 -if SWD

Execute GDB passing the ELF file:

$ arm-none-eabi-gdb nuttx

Connect to GDB server:

(gdb) target remote localhost:2331
Remote debugging using localhost:2331

Reset, load, add breakpoint and continue:

(gdb) monitor reset
