In looking at 32076 I wonder if instead of bringing back solib-legacy we could 
go down the route of using procfs to assist attach. This means the symbols 
can be read and the ABI get initialised correctly. The downside is that /proc 
needs to mounted:

(gdb) attach 12155
Attaching to process 12155
/proc/12155/file: No such file or directory.

which is better than gdb crashing.

Anyone object to this?
