File gdb-fix-buf-overflow.diff of Package gdb.9459

As comment explain, horror hack.  The symptom is that gdb
itself segfault when the moon is right (Factory at 2016-02-29,
on my machine), with gdb.base/call-sc (call-sc-tld variant,
i.e. long double), when checking the -m32 executables with
a host-x86-64 gdb.
The buffer overflow that valgrind sees actually clobbers a different
buffer so that glibc aborts in an unrelated free.
