No.  GDB sends out one packet and waits for the response.

No, it is not intentional.

I have to say that GDB and the remote stub interact incorrectly.  With
the limited information, hard to determine which part cause this

I forces gdbserver to use 's' packet, but unable to reproduce.

Sending packet: $Hc0#db...Packet received: OK
Sending packet: $s#73...Packet received:
Sending packet: $z0,80484c1,1#cf...Packet received: OK
