Log message:
	Document the -catch-assert and -catch-exception new GDB/MI commands.
	This patch adds documentation for the new GDB/MI commands "-catch-assert"
	and "-catch-exception", meant to provide the same functionality as
	the "catch assert", "catch exception" and "catch exception unhandled"
	CLI commands.
	In the GDB Manual, there was already a section for catchpoint comments,
	so that seemed like a natural place to document the new commands. But
	commands related to a given concept seem to have traditionally been
	organized alphabetically, and I didn't want future commands to break
	down logical pairing of various commands. For instance, "-catch-load"
	and "-catch-unload" are quite "distant" from each other, and it is easy
	to imagine a new comment which would alphabetically fall in between,
	causing them to be separated. So I introduced subsections to prevent
	that from happening.
	* NEWS: Add entry documenting the new "-catch-assert" and
	"-catch-exception" GDB/MI commands.
	* gdb.texinfo (Shared Library GDB/MI Catchpoint Commands):
	New subsection inside which the "-catch-load" and "-catch-unload"
	commands documentation is now placed.
	(Ada Exception GDB/MI Catchpoint Commands): New subsection
	documenting the "-catch-assert" and "-catch-exception" new
	GDB/MI commands.
