Re: [PATCH][PR 18702] Fix wrong output of x87 registers due to truncation to double on amd64

* Ruslan Kabatsayev <> [2015-12-04 19:09:46 +0300]:

> When `info float` is used on an AMD64 system, GDB prints floating-point
> values of x87 registers with raw contents like 0x361a867a8e0527397ce0 or
> 0xc4f988454a1ddd3cfdab wrongly. This happens due to truncation to double,
> after which the former becomes 0.0, and the latter becomes negative infinity.
> This is caused by failed detection of x86-64 host, which results in setting

> This commit fixes this misdetection, and adds a test to make sure future
> commits don't introduce a regression here.

There's a separate ChangeLog in the gdb/testsuite directory, so you
need to split your entry over these two files.  And remember files
names in the testsuite ChangeLog don't need to have the testsuite/
