Thanks for the comments.  Here is the updated version of it, reflecting
also the changes proposed on the BFD part.

Thanks,

	    Denys Vlasenko  <dvlasenk@redhat.com>

	* linux-tdep.c: Include `cli/cli-utils.h' and `exceptions.h'.
	(linux_fill_prpsinfo): New function.
	(linux_make_corefile_notes): Refactor code to gather information for
	PRPSINFO, using linux_nat_fill_prpsinfo.
	* procfs.c (procfs_make_note_section): Refactor code to gather basic
	information for PRPSINFO.
