File gdb-6.5-bz185337-resolve-tls-without-debuginfo-v2.patch of Package gdb.783

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=185337

2008-02-24  Jan Kratochvil  <jan.kratochvil@redhat.com>

	Port to GDB-6.8pre.

currently for trivial nonthreaded helloworld with no debug info up to -ggdb2 you
will get:
        (gdb) p errno
        [some error]

* with -ggdb2 and less "errno" in fact does not exist anywhere as it was
  compiled to "(*__errno_location ())" and the macro definition is not present.
  Unfortunately gdb will find the TLS symbol and it will try to access it but
  as the program has been compiled without -lpthread the TLS base register
  (%gs on i386) is not setup and it will result in:
        Cannot access memory at address 0x8

Attached suggestion patch how to deal with the most common "errno" symbol
for the most common under-ggdb3 compiled programs.

Original patch hooked into target_translate_tls_address.  But its inferior
call invalidates `struct frame *' in the callers - RH BZ 690908.

	* ./gdb/dwarf2read.c (read_partial_die, dwarf2_linkage_name): Prefer
	DW_AT_MIPS_linkage_name over DW_AT_name now only for non-C.

glibc-debuginfo-2.7-2.x86_64: /usr/lib/debug/lib64/libc.so.6.debug:
  <81a2>     DW_AT_name        : (indirect string, offset: 0x280e): __errno_location
  <81a8>     DW_AT_MIPS_linkage_name: (indirect string, offset: 0x2808): *__GI___errno_location
