GDB 8.1 release candidate on Friday (2018-01-12)

Joel Brobecker
Hello,

Thanks to Pedro, Tom, Maciej and Simon, I think we should be
in great shape.

The following are the issues that are still existing and should
be fixed before release:

  * [Pedro] gdb/22583
    gdb.base/breakpoint-in-ro-region.exp regressions on software
    single-step tar gets

The following were recently fixed:

  * [Maciej] remote/22597
    Empty `qsThreadInfo' reply handling regression causing inability to execute

  * [Pedro/Joel] gdb/22670
    regressions in Ada caused by introduction of wild matching in
    C++ patch series

  * [SimonM] no PR
    hurd: Add enough auxv support for AT_ENTRY for PIE binaries

The following has been analyzed as a testcase issue, rather than
a real issue -- hoping for the patch to be pushed soon:

  * [TomT] no PR yet
    Regression on 32-bit: gdb.guile/scm-ports.exp [Re: [RFA 1/2]
    Fix two regress ions in scalar printing
    https://sourceware.org/ml/gdb-patches/2017-12/msg00215.html

    Tom proposed a patch. Pedro asked for some clarification,
    Doug approved, and Tom provides some answers.

On my end, I am down to a very small number of failures when I use
AdaCore's testsuite. I still have to analyze them, but from where
I stand, only one may be related to the wild-matching series, but
I am guestimating that this is unlikely. Not blocking for the first
pre-release, IMO.

So, unless there are new issues we just discovered, I will proceed
with the first pre-release tomorrow!

This one is fixed now.
