Since CORE_ADDR is unsigned, this value can never be negative.

gdb/ChangeLog:

	* score-tdep.c (score7_malloc_and_get_memblock): Remove check for
	negative size.

score7_malloc_and_get_memblock is called like this,

  /* Allocate MEMBLOCK if PC - STARTADDR > 0.  */
  memblock_ptr = memblock =
    score7_malloc_and_get_memblock (startaddr, pc - startaddr);

and startaddr is got by find_pc_partial_function

    find_pc_partial_function (pc, NULL, &start_addr, NULL);

so pc >= startaddr, so size is >= 0.  Your patch is right to me.
