RE: GDB 6.8.92 available for testing

Hi Joel,
I tried to test this on i686-pc-linux
(Ubuntu server running in a VMware box on a windows XP)

Linux vadmin 2.6.28-15-server #52-Ubuntu SMP Wed Sep 9 11:50:50 UTC 2009
i686 GNU/Linux
gcc (Ubuntu 4.3.3-5ubuntu4) 4.3.3

# of expected passes		13434
# of unexpected failures	49
# of expected failures		43
# of unknown successes		1
# of known failures		59
# of untested testcases		13
# of unsupported tests		22
/usr/local/src/gdb-7pre/build/gdb/testsuite/../../gdb/gdb version  6.8.92
-nw -nx 

The test results are not that bad, but
it seems that I got a lot of UNTESTED
which seem to be related to the fact
that some warning flags are on by default on
the gcc that is installed.

This creates compilation failures in
1) gdb.base/checkpoint.c (wrong format arg type)
2) gdb.base/fileio.c (wrong format arg type)
3) gdb.base/shr1.c (wrong format arg type)
4) gdb.base/unload.c (format arg not literal)
5) gdb.base/watchpoint-solib.c (format arg not literal)  
6) gdb.threads/attachstop-mt.c (wrong format arg type)

1), 2), and 6) are easy to fix with explicit typecasts

3) is about an address, but "%p" does not seem to be supported by all
C lib format implementation, so I don't know if this can be fixed correctly.

4) and 5) seem more difficult ...

Maybe adding some default GCC option to the
site.exp could fix this?
