- Subject: linux native, switch forks, always have a thread
I'd missed this case when I made linux native always have a thread.
It's not perfect in the sense that switching forks ("restart"/"fork",
not follow-fork-mode) in multi-threaded apps doesn't handle
multi-threading correctly yet, but that is an already existing
problem. We shall be getting back to that in a few weeks
for multi-process support.

* linux-nat.c (linux_nat_switch_fork): Reinit GDB's thread list
and register the fork's PTID as a thread.
