Yes, you can if you use Linux with a recent gdb 4.17.0.xx. That is one
thing which annoys me very much when I work on gcc and glibc.

I was told someone would try to merge my x86 floating point patch into
gdb after gdb 4.18. I am still waiting for it. In the meantime, Linux
are stuck with gdb 4.17.
