The patch for this is attached (fix-java-demangle.diff).  I added a
flag DMGL_RET_POSTFIX for the demangler.  When this flag is present,
the return type is output after the function signature with a space
separating the two.  This option is enabled by default for the Java
demangler.  I modified the test harness and added test cases for this
as well.  This patch applies against cvs head, so it replaces the
libiberty parts of my previous patch.

I am also attaching a patch to gdb that uses this new flag to put
return types after the function signature for normal C++ symbols
stored in the lookup table too.  This helps with CNI debugging and as
a consequence, works around the issue that was pointed out earlier
with selecting template functions.  I'm not terribly familiar with gdb
internals, so I am not certain if this second patch causes any other
problems or whether the maintainers want to change the behavior for
template functions.

If this approach is acceptable, I will role this up into an overall
patch and resubmit.
