PR 16581:
	GDB crash on inherit_abstract_dies infinite recursion

fixed crash from an infinite recursion.  But in rare cases the new code can
now gdb_assert() due to weird DWARF file.

I do not yet fully understand why the DWARF is as it is but just GDB should
never crash due to invalid DWARF anyway.  The "invalid" DWARF I see only in
Fedora GCC build, not in FSF GCC build, more info at:
