Fix on Linux for ReadThread lingering after inferior exits

See this email thread:

This patch handles the case where the inferior process exits but leaves the ReadThread in a continuous loop reading from the communication pipe.  On MacOSX, the ReadThread exits when it receives a 0 return value from the read due to EOF.  On Linux the read returns -1 and sets errno to EIO error, this does not currently cause the thread to shutdown so it continues to read from the comm.   In Communication::ReadThread I added a handler for eConnectionStatusError to disconnect and shutdown the thread.

Change by Alex Pepper.
