Christian Biesinger has uploaded a new patch set version (#2).

Allow not saving the signal state in SIGSETJMP

Saving the signal state is very slow (this patch is a 14% speedup).  The
reason we need this code is because signal handler will leave the
signal blocked when we longjmp out of it.  But in this case we can
just manually unblock the signal instead of taking the unconditional
perf hit.

gdb/ChangeLog:

2019-10-15  Christian Biesinger  <cbiesinger@google.com>

	* gdbsupport/gdb_setjmp.h (SIGSETJMP): Allow passing in the value to
	pass on to sigsetjmp's second argument.
	* cp-support.c (gdb_demangle): Unblock SIGSEGV if we caught a crash.
