Don't we have already some kind of that implemented by forking the
inferior several times, and then switching to the appropriate fork
when the user wants to go backwards?
Anyway, a target could conceivably provide reverse execution without
any need for GDB to do that for it. I don't think the manual should
be too tied to what we currently have, because then it would be a pain
