Each time a dll is loaded, update_solib_list is called.
This in turn calls deep down xfer_partial -> windows_xfer_shared_libraries,
which calls windows_xfer_shared_library for each loaded dll,
and pe_text_section_offset reads the dll for the text section offset.

Also if the data provided by xfer_partial is bigger than 4K,
then all of this is done for each 4K chunk (see target_read_alloc_1).

Caching of the text section offset improves the startup time of
an application with >300 dynamically loaded plugins from 2m10s to 10s.
And the shutdown time improves from 2m to 2s.

gdb/ChangeLog:

2019-12-21  Hannes Domani  <ssbssa@yahoo.de>

	* i386-cygwin-tdep.c (core_process_module_section): Update.
	* windows-nat.c (struct lm_info_windows): Add text_offset.
	(windows_xfer_shared_libraries): Update.
	* windows-tdep.c (windows_xfer_shared_library):
	Add text_offset_cached argument.
	* windows-tdep.h (windows_xfer_shared_library): Update.
