Default Hack to get filename completion for the mod command

The mod command won't do filename completion.
Sometimes I set up a big ugly directory path for mod -S by starting with
the dir command, using its filename completion to get the modules
directory, and then command-line editing the dir command into a mod -S
command before executing it. Ahem.

This hacky patch allows crash to tell gdb that "mod" is a command that
should get filename completion. It's pretty un-smart filename
completion, e.g. doesn't know that sometimes it should be selecting from
a list of modules instead of filenames, etc. And it messes with the
separation of crash and gdb.

But mod -S <tab><tab> seems to work.

It does change the behavior of "crash> gdb help mod" and "crash> gdb
