With my patch, the command is "info w32 tib"
but I can change it to 
"show thread-information-block" if you prefer,
and if the show subcommands can handle the parsing of args.

The command support
"info w32 tib 0x456"
where 0x456 is the ThreadId given by the OS
to display another TIB than that of the current thread.
