H.J., it works for me! Thanks for the review and checking it in.

This part is a little different from my original patch, which is

+	if test x${want64} = xtrue ; then

+	fi

This requires something different in configure options. In my previous patch, when configure i686-pc-linux-gnu-gdb to handle bi-arch, we run configure with '--enable-64-bit-bfd'. In current trunk (w/ your patch), we have to run configure with '--enable-targets=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu'.

Copy gdb@ here to make sure GDB people are aware of this change, otherwise, configuring gdb with '--enable-64-bit-bfd' only still doesn't work for handling x86-64 corefile on x86 gdb.
