[PATCH 2/2] gdb: Add non-enum disassembler options

This is paired with "opcodes: Add non-enum disassembler options".

There is a portable mechanism for disassembler options and used on some
architectures:
- ARC
- Arm
- MIPS
- PowerPC
- RISC-V
- S/390

However, it only supports following forms:

- [NAME]
- [NAME]=[ENUM_VALUE]

Valid values for [ENUM_VALUE] must be predefined in
`disasm_option_arg_t.values'. For instance, for -M cpu=[CPU] in ARC
architecture, opcodes/arc-dis.c builds valid CPU model list from
include/elf/arc-cpu.def.

In this commit, it adds following format:

- [NAME]=[ARBITRARY_VALUE] (cannot contain "," though)

This is identified by NULL' value of disasm_option_arg_t.values'
(normally, this is a non-NULL pointer to a NULL-terminated list).

gdb/ChangeLog:

    * gdb/disasm.c (set_disassembler_options): Add support for
    non-enum disassembler options.
    (show_disassembler_options_sfunc): Likewise.
