    Hurd: Adjust to changes to "push pruning old threads down to the target"
    
    For "info threads", we currently run into:
    
        $ gdb/gdb -q -nw -nx --batch -ex start -ex info\ threads bfd/doc/chew
        Temporary breakpoint 1 at 0x80486e0: file ../../../W._C._Handy/bfd/doc/chew.c, line 1535.
        [New Thread 10656.5]
    
        Thread 4 hit Temporary breakpoint 1, main (ac=1, av=0x102cd84) at ../../../W._C._Handy/bfd/doc/chew.c:1535
        1535    {
          Id   Target Id         Frame
          1    bogus thread id 1 Can't fetch registers from thread bogus thread id 1: No such thread
    
    Before commit e8032dde10b743253125d7defb5f5503b21c1d26,
    gdb/thread.c:update_thread_list used to call prune_threads, after that change
    it doesn't anymore, and we don't implement the to_update_thread_list target
    method where the prune_threads call got moved.  For now, apply a fix, related
    to commit c82f56d9d760a9b4034eeaac44f2f0fa5779ff69 "Hurd: Adjust to
    startup-with-shell changes", which restores the previous behavior:
    
          Id   Target Id         Frame
        * 4    Thread 10688.4    main (ac=1, av=0x102cd84) at ../../../W._C._Handy/bfd/doc/chew.c:1535
          5    Thread 10688.5    0x0106096c in ?? () from /lib/i386-gnu/libc.so.0.3
    
    Not perfect, but at least better.
    
            gdb/
            * gnu-nat.c (gnu_create_inferior): After startup_inferior, call
            prune_threads.
