Thanks for review.  I'll post the patch below.

Yeah, you're right, I was using END_BITPOS as a separate value because
of the problem stated here:

	      /* We're entering a struct/union.  Right now,
		 PODATA->END_BITPOS points right *after* the
		 struct/union.  However, when printing the first field
		 of this inner struct/union, the end_bitpos we're
		 expecting is exactly at the beginning of the
		 struct/union.  Therefore, we subtract the length of
		 the whole struct/union.  */
	      local_podata.end_bitpos
		= podata->end_bitpos
		  - TYPE_LENGTH (TYPE_FIELD_TYPE (type, i)) * TARGET_CHAR_BIT;

However, it's just a matter of using PODATA->END_BITPOS instead, no big
deal.  So I've made the change, adapted the comments and references, and
it's all working as expected.

Yes, that's correct.  I'll adjust it.

Sure thing.  I'll add such function.

I thought about that, but I guess I'm too used to always include the
test message, plus I wasn't sure if there would be some case when the
test command would be the same.  But sure, I will do that.

Done.

Aha, good catch.  Kind of forgot about "whatis" ;-).  I decided to use
the 'show' parameter, checking if it is > 0, but did that further above,
because I don't want print_offsets to be 1.

Cool, I didn't remember you could match the test command with
gdb_test_multiple.  BTW, I replaced -ex by -re, but it works OK.

Thanks, here's what I'll push.

 *** Changes since GDB 8.0
 
+* The 'ptype' command now accepts a '/o' flag, which prints the
+  offsets and sizes of fields in a struct, like the pahole(1) tool.
+
 * New "--readnever" command line option instructs GDB to not read each
   symbol file's symbolic debug information.  This makes startup faster
   but at the expense of not being able to perform symbolic debugging.

 @item T
 Print typedefs defined in the class.  This is the default, but the flag
 exists in case you change the default with @command{set print type typedefs}.
+
+@item o
+Print the offsets and sizes of fields in a struct, similar to what the
+@command{pahole} tool does.  This option implies the @code{/tm} flags.
+
+For example, given the following declarations:
+
+@smallexample
+struct tuv
+@{
+  int a1;
+  char *a2;
+  int a3;
+@};
+
+struct xyz
+@{
+  int f1;
+  char f2;
+  void *f3;
+  struct tuv f4;
+@};
+
+union qwe
+@{
+  struct tuv fff1;
+  struct xyz fff2;
+@};
+
+struct tyu
+@{
+  int a1 : 1;
+  int a2 : 3;
+  int a3 : 23;
+  char a4 : 2;
+  int64_t a5;
+  int a6 : 5;
+  int64_t a7 : 3;
+@};
+@end smallexample
+
+Issuing a @kbd{ptype /o struct tuv} command would print:
+
+@smallexample
+(@value{GDBP}) ptype /o struct tuv
+/* offset    |  size */  type = struct tuv @{
+/*    0      |     4 */    int a1;
+/* XXX  4-byte hole  */
+/*    8      |     8 */    char *a2;
+/*   16      |     4 */    int a3;
+
+                           /* total size (bytes):   24 */
+                         @}
+@end smallexample
+
+Notice the format of the first column of comments.  There, you can
+find two parts separated by the @samp{|} character: the @emph{offset},
+which indicates where the field is located inside the struct, in
+bytes, and the @emph{size} of the field.  Another interesting line is
+the marker of a @emph{hole} in the struct, indicating that it may be
+possible to pack the struct and make it use less space by reorganizing
+its fields.
+
+It is also possible to print offsets inside an union:
+
+@smallexample
+(@value{GDBP}) ptype /o union qwe
+/* offset    |  size */  type = union qwe @{
+/*                24 */    struct tuv @{
+/*    0      |     4 */        int a1;
+/* XXX  4-byte hole  */
+/*    8      |     8 */        char *a2;
+/*   16      |     4 */        int a3;
+
+                               /* total size (bytes):   24 */
+                           @} fff1;
+/*                40 */    struct xyz @{
+/*    0      |     4 */        int f1;
+/*    4      |     1 */        char f2;
+/* XXX  3-byte hole  */
+/*    8      |     8 */        void *f3;
+/*   16      |    24 */        struct tuv @{
+/*   16      |     4 */            int a1;
+/* XXX  4-byte hole  */
+/*   24      |     8 */            char *a2;
+/*   32      |     4 */            int a3;
+
+                                   /* total size (bytes):   24 */
+                               @} f4;
+
+                               /* total size (bytes):   40 */
+                           @} fff2;
+
+                           /* total size (bytes):   40 */
+                         @}
+@end smallexample
+
+In this case, since @code{struct tuv} and @code{struct xyz} occupy the
+same space (because we are dealing with an union), the offset is not
+printed for them.  However, you can still examine the offset of each
+of these structures' fields.
+
+Another useful scenario is printing the offsets of a struct containing
+bitfields:
+
+@smallexample
+(@value{GDBP}) ptype /o struct tyu
+/* offset    |  size */  type = struct tyu @{
+/*    0:31   |     4 */    int a1 : 1;
+/*    0:28   |     4 */    int a2 : 3;
+/*    0: 5   |     4 */    int a3 : 23;
+/*    3: 3   |     1 */    signed char a4 : 2;
+/* XXX  3-bit hole   */
+/* XXX  4-byte hole  */
+/*    8      |     8 */    int64_t a5;
+/*   16:27   |     4 */    int a6 : 5;
+/*   16:56   |     8 */    int64_t a7 : 3;
+
+                           /* total size (bytes):   24 */
+                         @}
+@end smallexample
+
+Note how the offset information is now extended to also include how
+many bits are left to be used in each bitfield.
