Configuration information about targets is held in a special file which the DebugServer reads every time you run it. For each target, the configuration file contains:
The name of the target
The serial device used to communicate with the target
Configuration parameters for the serial device (baud rate, parity)
The architecture type of the target (i386, PPC, SPARC)
The absolute path of the layout.xml image layout file generated by mkimage
When a new target is registered, see "Registering a Target" for details of how to do this, the configuration file is modified.
