FWIW, so do I.  I thought that there was agreement to this when you
brought it up before.

I would be in favor of just creating an i386-linux-tdep.c and working
out the 8.3 issues later.  Since there are already 8.3 issues in
the gdb source directory, adding one more is not going to aggravate
the problem unduly.
