Stan,

I've removed smoke.c smoke.cc smoke.exp from HP tree, and adjusted
Makefile.in accordingly (to remove the executables associated with this
test from the EXECUTABLES list).

The change will appear in the gdb.base/ patch file which is coming
soon.  And I will provide you with an updated list of file rename /
moves.
