Re: [Patch] Bug 8287: Skip uninteresting functions while debugging

After many months of inactivity, I finally have time to work on this
again.  I'm really sorry for the delay.

I've attached a patch for tip of trunk.  I renamed the command from
"blacklist" to "skip".

The one major issue outstanding on the previous patch was that every
time you stepped, I tried to resolve all skips pending a shared
library load.  I did this because registering a solib load listener
didn't work -- somehow even after I was notified of the load, the
solib's symbols weren't available.

I hacked around this problem by putting a call to skip_re_set at the
end of breakpoint_re_set.
