Kernel is from trunk.  The machine is a TiG4.  It has the ``hybrid
wdc'' patch appled.


The GDB test ``sigall.exp'' creates a sub-process (of expect) called
sigall and then sends signals to it.

The process refuses to die (kill -9).  It just sits there chewing up

Killing its parent (expect) and then killing the child (sigall) does

Fetch a current gdb+dejagnu tar-ball from .

Configure, build, run the test sigall.exp:

gmake check-gdb RUNTESTFLAGS='--debug sigall.exp'
