In my system, Debian Lenny, I had compiler errors stating the struct
gdb_context was defined within the function scope which appeared as if
during the 3.5 -> 4.0rc6 merge some header might have been omited. Using
ctags, I found the definition of this struct was inside gdbstub.h and
the patch I've submited allowed the compilation to finish successfully. 

However, I've just tried to reproduce it again and I can't seem to get
the same behavior to reproduce. The only thing that changed since the
time I built Xen from the debuggers.hg and generated the patch (the
system was pretty much clean at the time) was the
compilation/installation of gdb 7.1 from source. 

Not quite sure that'd be relevant, however it's still semi-related in

Feel free to discard the patch, in the meantime I'll do some more tests
and if I find any hints of the problem, I'll update this thread.
