[PATCH 0/2] [GDBserver] Fix compiling conditional expressions accessing registers

Hi all,

I noticed compiled conditions for fast tracepoints failed to read
registers.  We can uncover the issue by compiling and executing the
following expression: `$rip == *set_point' on x86_64, with `set_point'
being the tracepoint symbol.  The expression should always be true but this
shows it isn't:

(gdb) ftrace set_point if $rip == *set_point
Fast tracepoint 2 at 0x4006b9: ...
(gdb) tstart
(gdb) continue

Breakpoint 3, end () at ..
(gdb) tstatus
Trace is running on the target.
Collected 0 trace frames.
Trace buffer has 5242880 bytes of 5242880 bytes free (0% full).
Trace will stop if GDB disconnects.
Not looking at any trace frame.
Trace started at 1441727485.544642 secs.

The following patches address this particular issue and adds a test case.
However, the test cases uncovered other issues which have been marked as
known failures, linking to PR/18955.

I have ran the test suite on both x86_64-linux and i386-linux, in a remote
