Details

Description: the python 3.8 introduced a warning about the use of 'is' and 'is not' operators in comparison, so now gdb at start prints two warnings from 'prompt.py' that prevents the usage of gdb within Emacs. The patch for the file is already in git (https://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cgi?p=binutils-gdb.git;a=commit;h=b6484282f85bf7f11451b2441599c241d302ad9d). Please, consider to apply a patch and rebuild the gdb package.

P.S. I locally changed the 'prompt.py' file and gdb doesn't show warnings in cmd and works as expected within Emacs.
