[patch/rfa] tweak patterns for annota3.exp

Note: i don't really understand the annotation stuff in gdb...

I've been getting FAILs for this test for a long time, and i never quite
understood why....

In the first case, i see an extra \r\n between "breakpoint 2" and
"Breakpoint 2, ...". Also on hppa-linux, the backtrace prints out the
address of the signal handler... i.e. i get 

#0  0x000105d4 in handle_USR1 (sig=16) at /home/tausq/gdb/gdb-cvs/gdb/testsuite/gdb.base/annota3.c:18

instead of what the script expected, which seems to be
#0  handle_USR1 (sig=16) at /home/tausq/gdb/gdb-cvs/gdb/testsuite/gdb.base/annota3.c:18

i see from test results posted by others that these tests do pass on
other platforms, but i don't see how this could be hppa specific....

can someone enlighten me about what's going on? or is this patch ok?

	* gdb.base/annota3.exp: allow addresses to be printed for signal 
	handlers, and multiple \r\n sequences after "breakpoint n".
