An earlier version of this patch used the returned block in conjunction
with BLOCK_ENTRY_PC to set stop_func_start in fill_in_stop_func() in
infrun.c.  While I think this was the correct thing to do, changes
to find_inferior_partial_function could potentially end up with
stop_func_end < stop_func_start, which is definitely wrong.  For
this case, we want to set both stop_func_start and stop_func_end
to the start and end of the range containing the function's entry

I think that this functionality will be useful in many other places
too - it probably ought to be used in all of the various prologue
analyzers in GDB.

The change to infrun.c was simple: the call to find_pc_partial_function
was replaced with a call to find_pc_partial_entry_range.  The difference
between these two functions is that find_pc_partial_entry_function
will (potentially) return the start and end address corresponding to
the range in which PC is found, but find_pc_partial_entry_range
will (again, potentially) return the start and end address of the
range containing the entry pc.  find_pc_partial_function has the
property that *ADDRESS <= PC < *ENDADDR.  This condition does not
necessarily hold for the outputs of find_pc_partial_entry_range.

It should be noted that for functions which contain only a single
range, the outputs of find_pc_partial_{function,entry_range} are

I think it might happen that find_pc_partial_entry_range will come
to be used in place of many of the calls to find_pc_partial_function
within GDB.  Care must be taken in making this change, however, since
some of this code depends on the *ADDRESS <= PC < *ENDADDR property.

    	* infrun.c (fill_in_stop_func): Use find_pc_partial_entry_range
    	in place of find_pc_partial_function.
    	* blockframe.c (find_pc_partial_entry_range): New function.
    	* symtab.h (find_pc_partial_entry_range): Declare and document.
