Don't crash if dwarf_decode_macro_bytes's 'body' is NULL



During the Fedora RPM build process, gdb-add-index is invoked to
extract the DWARF index from the binary, and GDB will segfault because
dwarf2read.c:parse_definition_macro's 'body' variable is NULL.

The underlying problem is that Fedora's rpm-build's "debugedit"
program will silently corrupt .debug_macro strings when a binary is
compiled with -g3.  This is being taken care of by Mark Wielaard,

However, I still feel it's important to make GDB more resilient
against invalid DWARF input, so I'm proposing this rather simple patch
to catch the situation when "body == NULL" (i.e., it's probably been
corrupted) and issue a complaint.  This is not a real fix to the
problem, of course, but at least GDB is able to finish without

OK for master?
