Move to gdb-7.9

We need to move to gdb-7.9 because gdb-7.8.2 is broken on Windows.

The gdb-7.9 version will not build for SPARC because the current patch for gdb-7.8.2 will not apply.

I would like to move the gdb for all targets to 7.9 if possible. Most are on 7.8.2 so there shouldn't be an issue. The two stuck on 7.7 might need work.

Please move everything possible to 7.9.

I have confirmed this version builds on Windows (MSYS2) with '--without-sim --without-python'.

I am looking at a possible Python solution give we have supported Python GDB for RTEMS.
