[RFA] Add "inf" alias for "info"

  I was used to use
(gdb) inf reg
to get a listing of registers,
but since the new "inferior" command appeared,
I now get this:
(gdb) inf reg
Ambiguous command "inf reg": inferior, info.

  The proposed patch add "inf" as an alias
of "info", saving the hassle of retyping "info"
after the message above. 
  I think that "inferior" is a far less used command
and it is only useful for targets supporting
multiple inferiors...

  Is this patch OK?
