While this GCC bug is in the process of being fixed, it would still be good
to allow GDB to be built with the affected GCC versions (in particular 4.9.x).

I've pushed the following workaround that changes the CFG of the affected
GDB routine in an equivalent way so that the GCC bug is no longer triggered.

Tested on x86_64-linux, pushed to mainline.



	* eval.c (evaluate_subexp_standard): Work around GCC bug 63748.
