For current gdb version (has tested with 7.3 and 8.1), 'lx-version'
only prints one character.
(gdb) lx-version
L(gdb)

This can be fixed by casting 'linux_banner' as (char *).
(gdb) lx-version
Linux version 4.19.0-rc1+ (changbin@acer) (gcc version 7.3.0 (Ubuntu 7.3.0-16ubuntu3)) #21 SMP Sat Sep 1 21:43:30 CST 2018

I'll update the upstream GDB bugzilla [0] regarding this issue - but I
think we need a workaround here, and this is it.

Fixes: 2d061d999424 ("scripts/gdb: add version command")
Reviewed-by: Kieran Bingham <kbingham@kernel.org>

And for reference, this already has an early LGTM from Jan as well.
