Frozen variable objects 2

Vladimir Prus-3

This is the final patch to add frozen variable objects. It includes testsuite
changes and documentation.

Since the time I've posted the first version the code has seen some extra
testing, and basically works fine. The only change is that now the "frozen=1"
fields is only output for frozen variable objects and "frozen=0" is never output.
This is to avoid adjusting everything single use of -var-create in the testsuite.

This patch depends on some of my previously posted patches, namely:

        - mi_continue_to cleanup
        - varobj doc cleanup
        - simplified MI tests


- Volodya

        * varobj.h (varobj_set_frozen): New
        (varobj_get_frozen): New.
        (varobj_update): New parameter explicit.

        and not_fetched.
        (varobj_set_frozen, varobj_get_frozen): New.
