Description of problem:
On i686 (or 32-bit machine), bt does not work.
Applying following upstream commit solved this bug in my environment.
  Fix some error-handling bugs in python frame filters
  http://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cgi?p=binutils-gdb.git;a=commit;h=30a7bb833cbd848b1814f18b91dfdafba4e86839

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdb-7.12-29.fc25

How reproducible:
Always, but it seems to depend on core complexity or something.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run firefox and gcore firefox.
2. gdb /usr/lib/firefox/firefox core.XXX
3. bt in gdb

Actual results:
(gdb) bt
Python Exception <class 'SystemError'> <built-in function isinstance> returned a result with an error set:
