bug#1489: gud.el not working with idb

Dear Nick,
M-x gud-gdb does not work at all. This is the error I get:

call-interactively: Autoloading failed to define function gud-gdb

Yes I agree this shouldn't be considered a bug. However I imagine it should be relatively easy to fix since idb provides a gdb compatibility mode (see the -gdb flag in the debugger command) and would make many users happy. I may try to learn some lisp and look into this problem myself although revision 1.136 has everything I need.
Thanks a lot

This isn't really an Emacs bug as gud.el wasn't designed for idb, but
`M-x gud-gdb' gives the old functionality that you probably want.
