In Dwarf::assemble in dwz.exp, 10 is hard-coded in it,

 	    subprogram {
 		{name main}
 		{low_pc main addr}
		{high_pc "main + 10" addr}
 	    }

however, the length of main function varies on architectures.  The
hard-coded 10 here causes dwz.exp fails on some targets, such as
nios2.

This patch is to add some code to compute the length of function main,
which is similar to what we are doing in entry-values.exp.

gdb/testsuite:

2014-04-24  Yao Qi  <yao@codesourcery.com>

	* gdb.dwarf2/dwz.exp: Compile main.c to object.  Restart GDB
	and compute the length of function main.  Save it in
	$main_length.
	(Dwarf::assemble): Use $main_length instead of hard-coded 10.
	(top-level): Use gdb_compile to compile objects into
	executable and restart GDB.  Remove invocation to
	prepare_for_testing.

(Is there really no way to query GDB for the function's size
directly?  Seems like something that "info symbol main" should
be spit out.)

Instead of this -re, best do

if { $main_length == "" } {
  return -1
}

after gdb_test_multiple, as $main_length is unknown on e.g., internal
error or timeout too.

x86 has instructions longer than that, though it's not likely
we'll see them as last instruction.  You want to disassemble two
instructions.  So instead of having to hard code some number and
having to explain it in a comment, how about just asking GDB what
we want, with x/i ?  That is:

(gdb) x /2i main+72
   0x45d854 <main+72>:  retq
   0x45d855:    nopl   (%rax)

Same comment here as above.
