Re: Status of 'blacklist' patch?

Rollup patch is attached, incorporating all feedback so far (I

Unfortunately the tests are randomly failing on me.  I'm not sure
what's going on, but it looks like we're not always waiting long
enough after runto_main, somehow.

The relevant expect code (in gdb.base/skip.exp) is:

if ![runto_main] { fail "skip tests suppressed" }
send_gdb "step\n"
# XXX This gdb_test sometimes fails, due to an apparent race.
gdb_test "bt" "\\s*\\#0\\s+main.*" "step after all ignored"

You need a gdb_expect after the send_gdb, otherwise the output from the step leaks into the next gdb_test and things get confused in the way you're seeing. I would use gdb_test for the "step" also, it's much simpler; send_gdb is only needed for unusual testing situations, and this is not one of them. :-)
