Hi,

During testing i noticed failures in gdb.mi/mi-var-rtti.exp for various 
targets. Nios2, arm and even x86.

Turns out we are assuming too much in terms of what the compiler should do.

In a couple functions (type_update_when_use_rtti_test and 
skip_type_update_when_not_use_rtti_test) the testcase assumes an 
uninitialized object has a specific type. In particular, 'ptr' and 's'.

In reality the compiler is free to do what it wants with that 
uninitialized variable, even initialize it beforehand with the future 
assignment's value. This is exactly what happens on some targets.

ptr should have type 'Base *', but it really has type 'Derived *' 
because it is already initialized (earlier) by the compiler. The same 
thing happens to 's'.

The following patch addresses this by explicitly initializing those 
variables so the compiler doesn't optimize their assignments and GDB can 
print their correct values.

Tested on Nios2, PowerPC and X86.

Ok?

Luis

Thanks, this is ok.
