Re: "maint print registers" crash

Ah, that usage of current_regcache is a bug anyway; I must have 
overlooked it.  current_regcache can now be NULL at other times
as well (always after registers_changed () for example); no code
should simply use that variable any more.

The following patch changes it to use get_current_regcache ()
instead, which currently always succeeds allocating a register
cache (even if we don't have an inferior yet).

That gets "maint print registers" immediately after startup
working for me.  Does this solve your problem?



	* regcache.c (regcache_print): Use get_current_regcache ()
	instead of current_regcache.
