This will need a change to the GDB manual as well.  It'd probably 
be a good idea to refer to the -M/--disassembler-options section
of the binutils/disassembler manual for the architecture specific

It'll be good to include an arch-independent gdb test to make sure
that "set disassembler-options" on other architectures doesn't
crash and cover some corner cases.  E.g., test at least both:

 "set disassembler-options"
 "set disassembler-options non-existing-option"
