We do unless the architecture is pre-PowerPC, in which case the old
non-generic code gets activated.  This is the relevant part of the patch:

+  if (rs6000)
+    {
+      set_gdbarch_use_generic_dummy_frames (gdbarch, 0);
+  else
+    {
+      set_gdbarch_use_generic_dummy_frames (gdbarch, 1);

The rs6000 variable is 1 for pre-PowerPC architectures and 0 otherwise.

So, is it still okay to apply this patch?  As I mentioned in an earlier
message, I'd really like to check this in as-is and deal with
non-showstopper issues via follow-on patches rather than modifying this
patch and reposting the whole 125k.
