Won't be soon. Because the patch to fix the case-insensitive searching
depends on another patch. (the full symtab expansion-patch) That patch
is quite big and leads to some regressions in the gdb-testsuite. Which
needs some more patches. All those patches are in the review-queue of
gdb, and this queue is huge...

So, half a year? A year?
