Yes, I'll import to gdb6

No. There are too many dependencies. I want it tested and validated
before I kill the debugger we have now. Once everything is ok, I
have no problem reimporting to contrib/gdb and removing contrib/gdb6
at that time we can also discuss whether we want gdb to depend on
binutils again or not.

Kernel debugging is going to be implemented differently. No more
local changes to support kernel core files or KVM and kernel
modules and no more local changes to support libc_r. Enough of that.
Threading support is going to be implemented using libthread_db and
kernel support is going to be implemented using IPC with a new
front-end tool (kgdb). People are already working on the various
aspects and the last thing we need is a disruptive gdb import.
