.gdbinit: load QEMU sub-commands when gdb starts

The scripts/ file is not easily discoverable.  Add a .gdbinit
file so GDB either loads automatically or prints a message
informing the user how to enable them (some systems disable ./.gdbinit
loading for security reasons).

Symlink .gdbinit and the scripts directory in order to make out-of-tree
builds work.  The scripts directory is used to find the file
specified by a relative path in .gdbinit.

# GDB may have ./.gdbinit loading disabled by default. In that case you can
# follow the instructions it prints. They boil down to adding the following to
# your home directory's ~/.gdbinit file:
# add-auto-load-safe-path /path/to/qemu/.gdbinit
# Load QEMU-specific sub-commands and settings
