[binutils-gdb] Testsuite: Ensure stack protection is off for GCC

*** TEST RESULTS FOR COMMIT fc65c7dbe0607dfb1fc3d1019c46df73854cc896 ***

Testsuite: Ensure stack protection is off for GCC

Using -fstack-protector-strong will cause GDB to break on the wrong line
when placing a breakpoint on a function.  This is due to inadequate dwarf
line numbering, and is being tracked by the GCC bug

GCC (and Clang) provided by Debian/Ubuntu default to stack protector
being enabled.

Ensure that when running the GDB testsuite, stack protector is always
turned off for GCC 4.1.0 (when stack protector was added) and above.

Ensure that this does not cause infinite recursion due to
test_compiler_info having to compile a file itself.

Add a test to explicitly test breakpoints with various levels of stack
protection on both GCC and Clang, with xfail for the known errors.

Restore change in ovldbreak.exp which worked around the issue.
