There's a patch on Dave's site which is supposed to do that.  That
patch is against GDB 4.17, and is based on compile-time #ifdef's, but
otherwise it should be fine.

What I was trying to figure out was how to add this support in a
cleaner way, so that Irix 6.x users will not need two different GDB
binaries to debug programs, one each for each ABI.
