I was responsible for the gdb directory being there - long time ago early in
the ppcboot days - when the board I was using had no ethernet and no flash
(really!). I would burn ppcboot into an EPROM, then use gdb to download a linux
kernel over the serial line and debug it the same way if it crashed (with kgdb).
Wasn't too bad at 230400 baud. But I stopped using these tools many years ago.

astest was just a little hack that printed some info I needed - it could
definitely go. In fact, the whole gdb directory could probably go, although
I suppose it might be useful to someone/somewhere/sometime. Cheers!
