scripts/gdb: use a generator instead of iterator for task list

The iterator does not return any task_struct from the thread_group list
because the first condition in the 'if not t or ...' will only be the
first time None.

Instead of keeping track of the state ourself in the next() function, we
fall back using Python's generator.
