Hmm... I'd rather not.  In general, I'm all in favor of destroying
calls to gdb_suppress_entire_file.  However, most other tests are
skipped because of some serious lack in GDB or the available OS
services, not because the test needs a quick port to that architecture. 
The asm-source.exp suppression was left messy to encourage people to
write the appropriate wrappers; it's really not hard to do.
