Re: [patch/rfc] Remove all setup_xfail's from testsuite/gdb.mi/

I was referring to the way it has been used in our tests. The distinction is
the absence of '-'s.
That is correct. The last argument of a setup_xfail, if it does not
contain '-' (Argh! Don't blame me, it was already there since immemorial
times) is the PR number. It can easily be a gdb/NNN bug id. We cannot
enforce the syntax, but we can enforce it as a police.
[Last or first? Oh, the answer is "either" according to framework.exp.]
Ah, but that is a command, I was thinking of an API. Oh well, we can always run
the thing and capture the output I guess...
P.S.: Does someone know how to programatically access the Gnats database?
Yes; the GNATS software package includes a number of remote tools,
particularly nquery-pr. You have to find a copy of GNATS 3.x; the 4.x
tools don't interoperate with the version on sourceware.
