You have to include the Makefile.in and configure/configure.in changes
as well. See the big Ingham/Seitz/Zannoni/Cagney patch for an example.

I like it when people describe what they did to test their patch.
I'm trying to persuade other people to do this too. But most people
don't say how they test, so it's okay if you don't.
Did you run the gdb test suite? On which platforms?

Either src/ or gdb/, we tend to be relaxed about this.
