Unless someone has a great need for gdb 5.2 and not 5.3, I would prefer
to just update the RTEMS toolset to gdb 5.3.  If you look at the RTEMS
patches, they are divided into 3 subparts only two of which are
applied.  The 1st two parts usually update pretty easily.  gcc and
newlib activity has just pushed gdb into the background.
