Well, thanks to you for helping with maintining GDB's Hurd port!  If you
need help with a new Hurd image, or want shell access to a system
(<>), please just
speak up.  (Likewise everyone else who is interested, of course!)

I did review it and did some testing in the areas that could most likely
be touched by it and found no problems.  I only had to do three very
minor corrections:

Whether it is better to do it the old way ( have a nested function
attach_to_child that will be passed to and called from within
fork_inferior), or do it like your patch does (inline the former
attach_to_child to be executed after fork_inferior has returned) -- I
have no idea, so I'll leave that to you.

That one needs ``#include "inf-child.h"''.

This statement should be removed: the default value (as set by
inf_child_target) is alright and you removed gnu_can_run just above.

``return t;'' is missing.
