This will need a change to the GDB manual as well. It'd probably
be a good idea to refer to the -M/--disassembler-options section
of the binutils/disassembler manual for the architecture specific
It'll be good to include an arch-independent gdb test to make sure
that "set disassembler-options" on other architectures doesn't
crash and cover some corner cases. E.g., test at least both:
"set disassembler-options non-existing-option"
