[v6] multi-executable support

Here's my current patch to add multi-executable support to GDB.
Following the last discussion,

This makes it so that there's always an inferior, and the
"symbol-spaces" are relegated to the background as an implementation
detail, renamed as program spaces.

This is almost the same as the patch I had posted on the link
above as "v5", with s/symbol-spaces/program-spaces/, generally
cleaned up, and documentation updated to reflect the simpler
model and to address other points Eli raised previously.

I'm hoping this isn't far from putting in, as it's been
a nuisance getting this patch close to mainline, as it
tends to regress easily due to new code going in that
doesn't consider multi-exec.

Eli, could you please take a new look at the docs bits?
I may have missed something, but I hope nothing big.

Note: the changeLogs are a bit stale and needs a
new update.

No regressions on x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.
