That makes sense to me.  Here is the updated patch.

We have noticed here that over time some of our test systems accumulate
stale System V IPC resources.  At least some of this is due to a GDB test
program, gdb.base/info-os.c.  The program doesn't clean up any allocated
IPC objects when an error occurs.  System V IPC objects will stay around
forever unless they are explicitly removed (or until a reboot).

This patch puts the IPC cleanup code into a function and calls atexit
so that the function will be called for any exit, not just successful

I looked at changing the SysV IPC key for allocating the IPC objects
to IPC_PRIVATE.  That would prevent a namespace conflict with the key.
However, the test needs to read the actual key number from the 'info os'
command output, and IPC_PRIVATE won't work for that.

One can clean up stale resources allocated by this test on Linux systems
by running 'ipcs' and looking for shared memory objects with keys in
the range 0xf55-0x133d, semaphore objects with keys in the range
0x1d04-20ec, and message queue objects in the range 0x14ae-0x1896.  Use
the 'ipcrm' command to delete the IPC objects.  Note that other programs
(like vncserver) use System V IPC, so make sure that the object is stale
before deleting it.

Tested on x86_64 Ubuntu.

	* gdb.base/info-os.c (shmid, semid, msqid): Make variables static
	and initialize them.
	(ipc_cleanup): New function.
	(main): Don't declare shmid, semid, and msqid.  Add a call to
	atexit so that we call ipc_cleanup on exit.
