Right, these should be handled as well.  Once we agree on how to handle
them, I can provide an updated patch.

Good point.  Or maybe instead of adding the expected size to the
callback we could allow the regset supply functions to pass back their
"recognized" size?  For instance:




(And then, for symmetry, the regset collect functions could also
indicate how much data they produced, i.e., how large the resulting
register section should be.  But I'm not sure whether there is currently
any application for this.)

A more "lazy" approach would be to assume that the "recognized" size
always equals the "minimum" size.  Then we could emit the warning like
this:

  if (size < min_size)
    {
      warning (_("Section `%s' in core file too small."), section_name);
      return;
    }
  else if (size != min_size)
    warning (_("Section `%s' in core file has unexpected size."),
             section_name);

This is certainly less flexible, but might be good enough.
