[RFC/testsuite] Update "info float" output for i386

I'm still in testsuite maintenance mode, for a little while longer.  I'm on
the home stretch for GCC 2.95.3 + stabs; as soon as I finish, I'll do my
monthly apt-get dist-upgrade, the default compiler on my Debian machine will
change to GCC 3.2 + DWARF-2, and I'll be right back where I started at
dozens of failures.  But I'll have a tremendous sense of accomplishment!

Some time ago Mark Kettenis updated i387-tdep.c to use frame_register_read
for "info float".  This changed the result of "info float" with no running
program; I think for the better, and so did he, if I recall rightly.  Can
anyone think of a reason not to update the testsuite correspondingly, as
with the attached patch?

For reference, the old output was a zeroed register dump; the new is "The
program has no registers now."  Which is quite entirely accurate.
