IMO, the ideal would be to share objfiles across inferiors (perhaps a
big task in itself) and then issue this warning at most once per
objfile. That way the user won't see 1000 warnings for /lib/libc.so.
This would be in addition to whatever settings we have for letting the
user control which warnings are emitted at all.
