Fix unused function error

Attempting to build GDB in Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS on x86_64, I ran into warnings
that caused the build to fail:

binutils-gdb/gdb/gdbsupport/safe-strerror.c:44:1: error: ‘char* select_strerror_r(char*, char*)’ defined but not used [-Werror=unused-function]  select_strerror_r (char *res, char *)

The diagnostics macros seem to expand correctly to their respective pragmas,
but it doesn't seem to have an effect on the warning. I tried to use the
pragmas explicitly and got the same result.

ATTRIBUTE_UNUSED works fine in this case, if you put it in both functions,
which should fix warnings for both gdb and gdbserver builds.

The compiler version is gcc (Ubuntu 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.11) 5.4.0 20160609.

	* gdb/gdbsupport/safe-strerror.c: Remove diagnostics.h
	(select_strerror_r): Use ATTRIBUTE_UNUSED instead of the diagnostics
