Subject: [PATCH 1/2] scripts/gdb: Cleanup error handling in list helpers

An incorrect argument to list_for_each is an internal error in gdb
scripts so a TypeError should be raised. The gdb.GdbError exception type
is intended for user errors such as incorrect invocation.

Drop the type assertion in list_for_each_entry because list_for_each isn't
going to suddenly yield something else.

Applies to both list and hlist
