Joel Brobecker - Jan. 8, 2018, 9:41 a.m.

One of the tests in gdb.ada/access_tagged_param.exp verifies
the value of the parameters being printed by GDB when stopping
at a breakpoint inside procedure Pck.Inspect.

In particular, one of these parameters is actually generated
internally by the compiler, and does only indirectly depend
on the user-level code. A recent change in AdaCore's compiler
caused the code expansion to change a little bit, and as a result,
the value of that parameter has changed from 2 to 3. This can be
evindenced by looking at the code post expansion, using the -gnatDG
command-line switch to generate the .dg files:

    $ gnatmake -g -gnatDG foo.adb
    $ vi foo.adb.dg

We can see that the call to pck.inspect used to be:

    pck__inspect (P8b, objL => 2);

With a recent version of GNAT Pro, it is now:

    pck__inspect (P9b, objL => 3);

This change causes a spurious FAIL when running this testcase.
The objL parameter being, at heart, a simple counter of the nesting
level, this commit relaxes the expected output to accept any single-
digit number. We could accept any decimal, but given the example
program, I dout that number will reach double-digit level. If it
does, we'll double-check that this is normal, and relax the expected
output further.


        * gdb.ada/access_tagged_param.exp: Relax expected output
        for value of "ObjL" in "continue" to pck.inspect breakpoint

Tested on x86_64-linux and pushed to master.
