Re: [PATCH v2] gdb/hppa-tdep.c: Fix logical working flow typo issue

After consult parisc kernel members, I found the related document for
it, I guess, it can be as our proof for this patch:

For me, my original comments need be improved: need mention about STH,
and maybe also need consider about additional related instructions of
parisc 2.0 (STDA, STWA, STBY, STDBY) in our source code.

Welcome any suggestions, ideas, and completions.
