[PATCH v4 1/2] Add new GDB command "maint print user-registers"

This adds a command for listing the "user" registers.  So far GDB
offered no means of determining the set of user registers and omitted
them from all other register listings.


	* user-regs.c: Include "arch-utils.h", "command.h", and
	(maintenance_print_user_registers): New.
	(_initialize_user_regs): Register new "maint print user-registers"
	* NEWS: Mention new GDB command "maint print user-registers".


	* gdb.texinfo: Document "maint print user-registers".
