[gdb/threads] Fix hang in stop_all_threads after killing inferior

Consider a two-threaded testcase a.out, sleeping in both its threads:
...
$ gdb -ex r --args a.out
Reading symbols from a.out...
Starting program: /data/gdb_versions/devel/a.out
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
Using host libthread_db library "/lib64/libthread_db.so.1".
[New Thread 0x7ffff77fe700 (LWP 31268)]
...

Typing ^C causes stop_all_threads to be executed, and if an external SIGKILL
(such as caused by killall -9 a.out) arrives at the start of stop_all_threads,
gdb hangs in stop_all_threads after giving this warning:
...
warning: unable to open /proc file '/proc/24938/status'
...

Using "set debug infrun 1" we can see in more detail where we hang:
...
infrun: stop_all_threads
infrun: stop_all_threads, pass=0, iterations=0
infrun:   Thread 0x7ffff7fa6740 (LWP 10264) not executing
infrun:   Thread 0x7ffff77fe700 (LWP 10268) executing, need stop
infrun: target_wait (-1.0.0, status) =
infrun:   10264.10268.0 [Thread 0x7ffff77fe700 (LWP 10268)],
infrun:   status->kind = signalled, signal = GDB_SIGNAL_KILL
infrun: stop_all_threads status->kind = signalled, signal = GDB_SIGNAL_KILL \

infrun: infrun_async(0)
infrun: stop_all_threads status->kind = no-resumed process -1
infrun:   Thread 0x7ffff7fa6740 (LWP 10264) not executing
infrun:   Thread 0x7ffff77fe700 (LWP 10268) executing, already stopping

infrun: stop_all_threads status->kind = no-resumed process -1
infrun:   Thread 0x7ffff7fa6740 (LWP 10264) not executing
infrun:   Thread 0x7ffff77fe700 (LWP 10268) executing, already stopping
<repeat>
......

So, we're hanging in the 'while (1)' loop in stop_all_threads as follows:
- thread t is tested, and both t->executing and t->stop_requested are found
  to be 1 (noted with 'executing, already stopping')
- consequently need_wait is set 1
- consequently wait_one is executed
- wait_one returns a TARGET_WAITKIND_NO_RESUMED event, which is handled by
  continuing at the start of the loop

The loop actually starts with update_thread_list (), but that doesn't seem
to change the state of the threads.

Fix the hang by:
- detecting the first sign of trouble: the TARGET_WAITKIND_SIGNALLED event
  with signal GDB_SIGNAL_KILL,
- making that event pending again, and
- breaking out of the loop.

This results in the ^C being handled without showing the user that the
test-case was killed:
...
^C
Thread 1 received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.
0x00007ffff78c50f0 in nanosleep () from /lib64/libc.so.6
(gdb)
...

But a subsequent continue does show that:
...
(gdb) c
Continuing.

Program terminated with signal SIGKILL, Killed.
The program no longer exists.
(gdb)
....

Build and reg-tested on x86_64-linux.
