Daniel's patch keeps the current data structure, which uses 1 bit
to indicate whether the function is prototyped or not.
I prefer to use 2 bits: TYPE_PROTO_KNOWN and TYPE_PROTO_YES.
That allows for three states:
known=0 gdb does not know if function is prototyped
known=1, yes=0 function is definitely not prototyped
known=1, yes=1 function is definitely prototyped
I have written such a 2-bit patch.
To be pedantic :-) That's an enum with three states:
It can be packed into two bits.
