Update gdb to version 7.11

Signed-off-by: Hannu Nyman <hannu.nyman at iki.fi>

Release notes:

GDB 7.11 brings new features and improvements, including:

* Per-inferior thread numbers (thread numbers are now per inferior instead
  of being global).

* GDB now allows users to specify breakpoint locations using a more
  explicit syntax (named "explicit location").  This feature is also
  available in GDB/MI.

* New convenience variables ($_gthread, $_inferior)

* When hitting a breakpoint or receiving a signal while debugging a
  multi-threaded program, the debugger now shows which thread triggered
  the event.

* Record btrace now supports non-stop mode.

* Various improvements on AArch64 GNU/Linux
  ** Multi-architecture debugging support
  ** displaced stepping
  ** tracepoint support added in GDBserver

* kernel-based threads support on FreeBSD.

* Support for reading/writing memory and extracting values on architectures
  whose memory is addressable in units of any integral multiple of 8 bits.

* In Ada, the overloads selection menu provides the parameter types and
  return types for the matching overloaded subprograms.

* Various remote protocol improvements, including several new packets
  which can be used to support features such as follow-exec-mode, exec
  catchpoints, syscall catchpoints, etc.

* Some minor improvements in the Python API for extending GDB.

* Support for various ROM monitors has been removed:
  target dbug           dBUG ROM monitor for Motorola ColdFire
  target picobug        Motorola picobug monitor
  target dink32         DINK32 ROM monitor for PowerPC
  target m32r           Renesas M32R/D ROM monitor
  target mon2000        mon2000 ROM monitor
  target ppcbug         PPCBUG ROM monitor for PowerPC
