[patch] zap HPPA_COMPILER_BUG and friends

Follow this carefully :-)

GDB compiles with ISO-C compilers
ISO-C compilers define __STDC__
HPPA_COMPILER_BUG is defined when !__STDC__

=> HPPA_COMPILER_BUG is never defined
=> can delete #define HPPA_COMPILER_BUG
=> can delete #ifdef HPPA_COMPILER_BUG

	* config/pa/xm-hppah.h (HPPA_COMPILER_BUG): Delete. GDB only
	compiles using an ISO-C compiler.
	* linespec.c (decode_line_1): Delete hack to work around

-   /* FIXME: The native HP 9000/700 compiler has a bug which appears
-      when optimizing this file with target i960-vxworks.  I haven't
-      been able to construct a simple test case.  The problem is that
-      in the second call to SKIP_PROLOGUE below, the compiler somehow
-      does not realize that the statement val = find_pc_line (...) will
-      change the values of the fields of val.  It extracts the elements
-      into registers at the top of the block, and does not update the
-      registers after the call to find_pc_line.  You can check this by
-      inserting a printf at the end of find_pc_line to show what values
-      it is returning for val.pc and val.end and another printf after
-      the call to see what values the function actually got (remember,
-      this is compiling with cc -O, with this patch removed).  You can
-      also examine the assembly listing: search for the second call to
-      skip_prologue; the LDO statement before the next call to
-      find_pc_line loads the address of the structure which
-      find_pc_line will return; if there is a LDW just before the LDO,
-      which fetches an element of the structure, then the compiler
-      still has the bug.
-      Setting val to volatile avoids the problem.  We must undef
-      volatile, because the HPPA native compiler does not define
-      __STDC__, although it does understand volatile, and so volatile
-      will have been defined away in defs.h.  */
