Correct __FreeBSD_version to use?

I use FreeBSD mainline for my normal use and I don't have
access to a system with the upcoming FreeBSD 8.0.  It appears
the changes to sys/amd64/include/pcb.h to remove the
pcb_{fs,ds,es,gs} members of the pcb struct breaks at least
gdb-6.8.x and gdb-7.0.  I've sent a patch to the gdb developers
to get gdb-7.0 building on FreeBSD mainline.

My question is what __FreeBSD_version number should I use
to have gdb working on FreeBSD 8.0 or greater?  To be clear,
this is the commit to the 8.0 branch that breaks anything
that uses pcb on the amd64 target.
