Add support to automatically unzip compressed executable and core

$TMPDIR) and are deleted when GDB exits. This should be transparent
to users, except for disk space requirements. The name of the
uncompressed file is mentioned, but all references to the file in
GDB messages is to the file which the user specified.

Please do not add GDBSERVER conditionals to gdb/common, I spent half
a year removing them all.
It looks like this code is only used by GDB, not gdbserver, so the
fix is simple, just put the code somewhere GDB-specific.
Sure. Any suggestions? gdb_bfd.c seems like the wrong place.
