Re: [RFA] gdb.base -- use gdb_test_no_output

FYI in the testcase the inferior is no loner running when `set language asm' is
entered.  There is preceding:

(gdb) run^M
Starting program: .../gdb.base/setshow foo bar blup baz bubble^M
foo bar blup baz bubble ^M
Program exited normally.^M
(gdb) PASS: gdb.base/setshow.exp: passing args

Ah, that would explain it! This part of setshow.exp:

# Don't test if we can't pass args or if we're using a stub.
if { ![target_info exists use_gdb_stub] && ![target_info exists noargs] } {
    #test passing args
    gdb_test "cont" "Continuing.*" "continuing"
    gdb_test "run" "Starting program:.*foo bar blup baz bubble.*" "passing args"

is skipped on spu-elf because we cannot pass command line arguments
(well, at least it's not set up that way).

However, it seems to me that this is still a bug: I don't really think the
intention was that the remaining checks are to be executed on a running
inferior on some targets, and on a exited inferior on others ...

I'm reverting that line of change, as attached.
