[PATCH 0/4] catch syscall -- try 3 -- Introduction

Hi, it's me again :-)

This is the third attempt to push this patch upstream :-). I've
basically reworked everything that you asked me, so I think things are
pretty much better now. Basically, the changes are:

- Incremented the documentation (as suggested by Eli)

- Fixed some bugs

- Now you can catch as many syscalls as you want in one single command
(thanks to Tom Tromey!)

- Create a "linux-tdep.[ch]", and put the common syscall functions there
(suggestion by Daniel Jacobowits)

- Put the syscall_state inside lwp_info (as requested by Pedro)

... and other minor changes. Unfortunately (only for Eli, apparently), I
decided to keep the mechanism the way it is, so you'll still find
syscalls being stored as numbers in this version of the patch. That's
not personal; I only thought that people in general were happy with the
way I did.

It's also good to mention that the support for x86_64 arch is almost
done (I have one little regression to solve). That's for you, Phil ;-).

Ok, I'm tired (3:30am here) so I won't write too much. I'd appreciate
your review :-).
