This patch fixes a Python exception that was being thrown when trying to register a global pretty-printer with verbose mode on:

  File "/usr/share/gdb/python/gdb/printing.py", line 119, in register_pretty_printer
    gdb.write("Registering global %s pretty-printer ...\n" % name)
NameError: name 'name' is not defined

This patch was previously accepted by Doug Evans (https://sourceware.org/ml/gdb-patches/2015-03/msg00312.html), but it was never committed.

I have a company-wide copyright assignment for gdb. I don't have commit access though, so it would be great if anyone could commit this for me. Thanks a lot!

Chamges in v3:
 * Added the function name to the ChangeLog entry, and wrapped it at 80 characters.

Changes in v2:
 * Moved printer.name to the next line so that it won't break the 80 character limit.
