This bug has recently appeared again and someone reminded me that this patch
is still outstanding (thanks, Jan!). Pedro reviewed this in June.

Revisions in v2:
- Added some comments to the test case
- Renamed types/variables in the test case
- Added initializer for previously uninitialized structure member

This patch fixes gdb/21356 in which we hit an assertion in
value_contents_bits_eq:

(gdb) p container_object2
(gdb) p container_object2
$1 = {_container_member2 = 15, _vla_struct_object2 = {_some_member = 0,
    _vla_field = {
../../src/gdb/value.c:829: internal-error: int value_contents_bits_eq(const value*, int, const value*, int, int): Assertion `offset1 + length <= TYPE_LENGTH (val1->enclosing_type) * TARGET_CHAR_BIT' failed.
A problem internal to GDB has been detected,
further debugging may prove unreliable.
Quit this debugging session? (y or n)

This is happening because TYPE_LENGTH (val1->enclosing_type) is erroneously
based on enclosing_type, which is a typedef, instead of the actual underlying
type.

This can be traced back to resolve_dynamic_struct, where the size of the
type is computed:

  2093        TYPE_FIELD_TYPE (resolved_type, i)
  2094          = resolve_dynamic_type_internal (TYPE_FIELD_TYPE (resolved_type, i),
  2095                                           &pinfo, 0);
  2096        gdb_assert (TYPE_FIELD_LOC_KIND (resolved_type, i)
  2097                    == FIELD_LOC_KIND_BITPOS);
  2098
  2099        new_bit_length = TYPE_FIELD_BITPOS (resolved_type, i);
  2100        if (TYPE_FIELD_BITSIZE (resolved_type, i) != 0)
  2101          new_bit_length += TYPE_FIELD_BITSIZE (resolved_type, i);
  2102        else
  2103          new_bit_length += (TYPE_LENGTH (TYPE_FIELD_TYPE (resolved_type, i))
  2104                             * TARGET_CHAR_BIT);

In this function, resolved_type is TYPE_CODE_TYPEDEF which is not what we
want to use to calculate the size of the actual field.

This patch fixes this and the similar problem in resolve_dynamic_union.

gdb/ChangeLog:

	PR gdb/21356
	* gdbtypes.c (resolve_dynamic_union, resolve_dynamic_struct):
	Resolve typedefs for type length calculations.

gdb/testsuite/ChangeLog:

	PR gdb/21356
	* gdb.base/vla-datatypes.c (vla_factory): Add typedef for struct
	vla_struct.
	Add new struct vla_struct_with_vla_typedef and union
	vla_union_with_vla_typedef and corresponding instantiation objects.
	Initialize new objects.
	* gdb.base/vla-datatypes.exp: Add tests for
	vla_struct_with_vla_typedef_object and
        vla_union_with_vla_typedef_object.
	Fixup type for vla_struct_object.
