[PATCH] Fix some 64-bit Objective-C bugs

Hello,

when analysing test suite failures I've noticed a couple of objc
FAILs on s390x that are not backend-related, but in fact caused
but 64-bit unclean code in gdb common objc code.  They are 
typically caused by converting a target pointer to 'int'.

In particular objc selectors are target pointers, and should
thus be held in variables of type CORE_ADDR, not 'int', on the
host.  This patch fixes a couple of occurrances of this problem.

Also, the type information for method pointers was incorrect
when using the GNU runtime, because this involves an additional
indirection step.  Due to this, 'call_function_by_hand' would
assume a return type of 'int' in some cases instead of a correct
pointer return type -- this would again incorrectly truncate
the return value.

The patch fixes this problem as well; it also adapts one test
case which actually tested for the incorrect 'int' return value
instead of the correct pointer type.

Tested on s390-ibm-linux and s390x-ibm-linux with no new regressions.
Fixes 4 test case failures on s390x.

Bye,
Ulrich


ChangeLog:

	* eval.c (evaluate_subexp_standard, case OP_OBJC_MSGCALL): Use 
	CORE_ADDR as type for selectors.  Correct types for GNU run time
	message lookup function to use double indirection.
	* objc-lang.c (lookup_child_selector): Use CORE_ADDR as return type.
	* objc-lang.h (lookup_child_selector): Adapt prototype.

testsuite/ChangeLog:

	* gdb.objc/basicclass.exp: Adapt to fixed return type of printHi.
