I've been given a patch by Roel Kluin to fix the error numbers generated by
the GDB stub in the FRV arch of the Linux kernel, but I've no real idea if
what the patch does is correct, or whether what's there already is correct, or
if neither is correct.

Even if GDB currently ignores the codes, it would be good to have a definition
of what they *ought* to be, so should gdb be fixed to make use of them at
sometime in the future, the kernel will be already correct.
