Bug Description

SRU: backport gdb 7.11.1 patches to 16.04 LTS (from 7.11). The upstream bugfix release contains a handful of patches fixing only bugs, which are:

    - Fix PR gdb/19828, PR gdb/20045, PR gdb/18077, PR gdb/20039,
      PR python/20037, PR remote/19840, PR gdb/19858, PR gdb/19829,
      PR gdb/19676.

Also mentioned in the attached debdiff.

Proposing to accept this update into xenial-proposed, and accept it if the newly added testcases pass and existing test cases don't show regressions (the testsuite is run during the build). The build in yakkety doesn't show any regressions, and the new test cases pass.

Any update on this?

slightly reduced diff with the autogenerated files removed.

The diff is big, but it's also just a lot of doc and autotools noise, the actual code changes look reasonable and have tests.

Hello Matthias, or anyone else affected,

Accepted gdb into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gdb/7.11.1-0ubuntu1~16.04 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!
