If you've been reading the patch list, you'll know that I've been
regression testing gdb against gcc svn trunk.  I'm done sending patches,
so I thought I would send a little status report.

gdb does not build using gcc svn.  I have attached a patch that makes it
build, but I consider this patch a bit dubious.  We may be seeing gcc
bugs, in particular the remote.c change is quite fishy.

After all the patches, including the RFC'd dwarf2read.c patch, there is
still a regression:

-PASS: gdb.cp/class2.exp: p acp->c1
-PASS: gdb.cp/class2.exp: p acp->c2
+FAIL: gdb.cp/class2.exp: p acp->c1
+FAIL: gdb.cp/class2.exp: p acp->c2

This is a GCC bug:

that's it,
