The patch looks good to me in general. I wrote a few minor comments

It's not a big deal, but you could use
make_cleanup_ui_out_list_begin_end, which avoids accidentally forgetting
the corresponding ui_out_end.

Same here, but with make_cleanup_ui_out_tuple_begin_end.

You might be able to just remove the else. I think ui_out_field_skip is
only relevant for tables (which was used in the code that you took
inspiration from), since you need to explicitly tell if you want to skip
a table cell. For tuples, if you want to omit a field, you just don't

I noticed that this comment, which you moved from the .c to the .h,
refers so_list_head. so_list_head is a define present in the .c, so the
comment makes less sense now. What about bringing the define to the .h,
and at the same time you could use it in the definition of ALL_SO_LIBS?

For consistency with all tests, I would suggest changing the test name
to "get the list of shared libraries" (no period at the end,
non-capitalized, neutral verb tense which I don't the name).
-mi_expect_stop solib-event .* .* .* .* .* "check for solib event"
I often see some tests ending with gdb_exit or mi_gdb_exit, but I don't
think it's really required. The code in lib/gdb.exp (e.g. gdb_exit)
should take care of that, but I could be mistaken.
