Sorry, this patch came from an old branch. Here’s one that applies to 
master (re-regtested, just in case, on x86_64-linux: no regression).

As discussed live with Joel, I pushed the patch on master. I’m about to 
submit the documentation as another patch.

Subject: [PATCH] Enhance the menu to select function overloads with signatures

So far, trying to evaluate an expression involving a function call for
which GDB could find multiple function candidates outputs a menu so that
the user can select the one to run.  For instance, with the two
following functions:

    type New_Integer is new Integer;

    function F (I : Integer) return Boolean;
    function F (I : New_Integer) return Boolean;

Then we get the following GDB session:

    (gdb) print f(1)
    Multiple matches for f
    [0] cancel
    [1] foo.f at foo.adb:23
    [2] foo.f at foo.adb.28
    >

While the source location information is sufficient in order to
determine which one to select, one has to look for them in source files,
which is not convenient.

This commit tunes this menu in order to also include the list of formal
and return types (if any) in each entry.  The above then becomes:

    (gdb) print f(1)
    Multiple matches for f
    [0] cancel
    [1] foo.f (integer) return boolean at foo.adb:23
    [2] foo.f (foo.new_integer) return boolean at foo.adb.28
    >

Since this output is more verbose than previously, this change also
introduces an option (set/show ada print-signatures) to get the original
output.

gdb/ChangeLog:

	* ada-lang.c (print_signatures): New.
	(ada_print_symbol_signature): New.
	(user_select_syms): Add signatures to the output of candidate
	symbols using ada_print_symbol_signature.
	(_initialize_ada_language): Add a "set/show ada
	print-signatures" boolean option.
	* NEWS: Announce this enhancement and the corresponding new
	option.

gdb/doc/ChangeLog:

	* gdb.texinfo (Ada Mode Into): Move overloading support
	description to its own node.
	(Overloading support for Ada): New node.

gdb/testsuite/ChangeLog:

	* gdb.ada/fun_overload_menu.exp: New testcase.
	* gdb.ada/fun_overload_menu/foo.adb: New testcase.

Tested on x86_64-linux, no regression.
