Hey Maciej,

Aside from a small nit on patch #3, I really like the direction you
chose on this patch.  I am not a binutils maintainer and not a GDB
global maintainer, so I cannot approve it, but it does look good to me
and makes the existing code more logical and simpler to follow.

I also like the fact that you removed the responsibility that GDB had to
decide which prpsinfo structure it would use.  That's something I
remember struggling with when I was hacking the initial patch, and I'm
glad this patch solves it.
