Actually, it is small enough to review now.

I take it that this last @node is supposed to be a sub-node of
"Operating System Information", right?  If so, there are 2 problems

  . @appendix is an equivalent of @section, so its immediate sub-nodes
    cannot be @section's.  They should be @appendixsubsec instead.

  . There should be a @menu in the parent @node that lists all its
    immediate sub-nodes.  Otherwise, makeinfo will barf or do the
    wrong thing, because it will not be able to intuit the correct
    node structure of the document.

"name of `pid'" does not sound right.  Do you mean " the name of the
process identified by @var{pid}"?

  "The @samp{user} and @samp{command} columns are optional..."

Too much passive tense.  Suggest to rephrase:

  Target may provide additional columns which @value{GDBN} currently
