  Add a /S mode to DDB "ex" command, which interprets and prints the
  value at the requested address as a symbol.  For example, "ex /S
  aio_swake" prints the name of the function currently registered in
  via aio_swake hook.
  The change as committed differs slightly from the patch in the PR,
  as I force the size of the retrieved value (and the automatic
  address increment) to be sizeof(void *).  This seems to provide
  the most useful auto-increment behavior, and defaults using the
  default size (4), which is not sizeof(void *) on 64-bit platforms.
