uncompressed file is mentioned, but all references to the file in
GDB messages is to the file which the user specified.

Please do not add GDBSERVER conditionals to gdb/common, I spent half
a year removing them all.

It looks like this code is only used by GDB, not gdbserver, so the
fix is simple, just put the code somewhere GDB-specific.

Sure.  Any suggestions?  gdb_bfd.c seems like the wrong place.
