The attached patch wraps PyObject_GetAttrString and
PyObject_HasAttrString in internal functions which have const
qualifier for the second argument. This is required because these
functions were missing the const qualifier in Python-2.4.

ChangeLog
2014-06-09  Siva Chandra Reddy  <sivachandra@google.com>

        * python/python-internal.h (gdb_PyObject_GetAttrString)
        (gdb_PyObject_HasAttrString): New inline function definitions.
        * py-value.c (get_field_flag): Remove the now unnecessary cast to
        (char *) of the second argument to PyObject_GetAttrString.

I'd suggest moving the "in Python 2.4" to the first sentence, like:

/* The second argument to PyObject_GetAttrString was missing the 'const'
   qualifier in Python 2.4.  Hence, we wrap it in a function to avoid errors
   when compiled with -Werror.  */

Otherwise looks great to me.

Thanks!

Oh, and this comment is stale here now.

Thanks for the quick review. I have pushed the attached patch which
includes the doc fixes suggested by Pedro.
