A gdb 4.17 patch for linux/x86

The changes to the C expression parser are bad.  They cause any 20 digit hex
number to be converted to a raw DOUBLEST value.  If you *really* want to
implement something like that, you have to come up with an unambiguous syntax.
The current scheme will cause unexpected results if you (reasonably) expect to
use a 20 digit integer.
