Re: eliminate deprecated_insert_raw_breakpoint. what's left.

Hi Pedro,

I would be surprised if anyone still cared about IRIX anymore.
I enjoyed working on that system, but I no longer have access
to it, so can't support it anymore.

I am actually wondering whether this is still needed. It could!
So, the first thing I wanted to do was to run the testsuite without.
I'm currently building GDB, which is taking forever, and will then
run AdaCore's testsuite.

I can certainly assist in making the change regardless!

In terms of testing, I can only run AdaCore's testsuite because
expect isn't working for me on AIX, and I lack the time to
research it further. Although not ideal, it's been good enough
for us.
