OK (but please remember to edit out the question and "attachment"
from the commit log).

Missing period.

Now that this is a public function, it'd be nice to
document its interface.

Mention this in the ChangeLog.

Multi-line conditionals should be wrapped in ()s, and then
the && naturally aligns under "cmd":

  return (cmd != NULL
          && cmd != CMD_LIST_AMBIGUOUS
          && strcmp (cmd->name, name) == 0);

(and suitably tabified).

   return skip_spaces_const (first_arg);

Move these to the scope that needs them?

It'd be good to add a comment about why we do this instead of
just doing a strcmp.  Mention something about aliases and
unique command abbreviations.  Please tweak the subject
line / commit log too; I initially thought this was going
to be about tab completion.  :-)

Here too.

typo: "user" ?

Does this fail with an unfixed GDB?  I ask since this is just matching the
prompt, which a "bad" GDB also outputs?

Odd message for this test.  I suggest wrapping these three
tests in

with_test_prefix "command abbreviations in define" {
  set test "define user command: breakmain"
  gdb_test_multiple "define breakmain" "$test" .....

  gdb_test "breakmain" ".*Breakpoint 2.*" "run user command"

  gdb_test "info break 2" \ 
    .... \
    "info break shows echo command"
}

It's better to avoid hardcoding breakpoint numbers, since
it'll break if someone adds some test before this one
that creates some other breakpoint.

You can use "$bpnum" instead to avoid that.
