Then let's lump there also the DOS- and Windows-specific "info"
commands for a good measure.
IOW, either "info os" is a hodgepodge of every OS-specific information
we provide about the process being debugged, or we have OS-specific
"info FOO" ("info dos", "info w32", "info linux", etc.) commands.
Having some of this and some of that is just inconsistent.
