File gdb-6.3-ppc64syscall-20040622.patch of Package gdb

2004-06-22  Andrew Cagney  <cagney@gnu.org>

	* rs6000-tdep.c (struct rs6000_framedata): Add field "func_start".
	(skip_prologue): Delete local variable "orig_pc", use
	"func_start".  Add local variable "num_skip_linux_syscall_insn",
	use to skip over first half of a GNU/Linux syscall and update
	"func_start".
