I have now pushed the patch version below.  The only change from the
previous version is in riscv-unwind-long-insn.exp where I make the
test binary name unique over the two iterations of the test.

Thanks,

    gdb/riscv: Don't error when decoding a 6 or 8 byte instruction
    
    If the RISC-V prologue scanner finds a 6 or 8 byte instruction we
    currently throw an internal error, which is not great for the user.
    
    A mechanism already exists in the prologue scanner to leave
    instructions marked as unknown so that we can stop the prologue scan
    without raising an error, this is used for all 2 and 4 byte
    instructions that are not part of the small set the prologue scanner
    actually understands.
    
    This commit changes GDB so that all 6 and 8 byte instructions are
    marked as unknown, rather than causing an error.
    
    gdb/ChangeLog:
    
            * riscv-tdep.c (riscv_insn::decode): Gracefully ignore
            instructions of lengths 6 or 8 bytes.
    
    gdb/testsuite/ChangeLog:
    
            * gdb.arch/riscv-unwind-long-insn-6.s: New file.
            * gdb.arch/riscv-unwind-long-insn-8.s: New file.
            * gdb.arch/riscv-unwind-long-insn.c: New file.
            * gdb.arch/riscv-unwind-long-insn.exp: New file.
