For the curious, I ran the testsuite over gdbserver on i386-linux.  Results:

                === gdb Summary ===

# of expected passes            6727
# of unexpected failures        980

That's after a patch to fix some timeout problems - checking [isnative]
instead of ![is_remote target] - which I'll post in a few days. 
There's a LOT of timeouts.  Including almost all of MI, for reasons not
immediately clear.  And gcore failed to work over a remote link,
presumably because we lack some needed information that the remote
protocol can not supply.  Ditto info proc.
