    Make STARTUP_WITH_SHELL a runtime toggle -- add new "set/show startup-with-shell" option.
    Occasionaly we hear about people having problems with GDB not being
    able to start programs (with "run"/"start").  GDB spawns a shell to
    start the program, and most often, it'll be the case that the problem
    is actually with the user's shell setup.
    GDB has code to disable the use of the shell to start programs.
    That's the STARTUP_WITH_SHELL macro that native targets could set to 0
    in their nm.h file (though no target actually uses it nowadays).
    This patch makes that setting a run-time knob instead.  This will be
    useful to quickly diagnose such shell issues, and might also come in
    handy at other times (such as when debugging the shell itself, if you
    don't have a different shell handy).
