I see a timeout in gdb.base/random-signal.exp,

 Continuing.^M
 PASS: gdb.base/random-signal.exp: continue
 ^CPython Exception <type 'exceptions.KeyboardInterrupt'> <type
 exceptions.KeyboardInterrupt'>: ^M
 FAIL: gdb.base/random-signal.exp: stop with control-c (timeout)

it can be reproduced by running random-signal.exp with native-gdbserver
in a loop, like this, and the fail will be shown in about 20 runs,

$ (set -e; while true; do make check RUNTESTFLAGS="--target_board=native-gdbserver random-signal.exp"; done)

In the test, the program is being single-stepped for software watchpoint,
and in each internal stop, python unwinder sniffer is used,

when GDB goes to python extension, or other extension language, the
SIGINT handler is changed, and is restored when GDB leaves extension
language.  GDB only stays in extension language for a very short period
in this case, but if ctrl-c is pressed at that moment, python extension
will handle the SIGINT, and exceptions.KeyboardInterrupt is shown.

Language extension is used in GDB side rather than inferior side,
so GDB should only change SIGINT handler for extension language when
the terminal is ours (not inferior's).  This is what this patch does.
With this patch applied, I run random-signal.exp in a loop for 18
hours, and no fail is shown.

gdb:

2015-12-21  Yao Qi  <yao.qi@linaro.org>

	* extension.c: Include target.h.
	(set_active_ext_lang): Only call install_gdb_sigint_handler,
	check_quit_flag, and set_quit_flag if target_terminal_is_inferior
	returns false.
	(restore_active_ext_lang): Likewise.
