Neither, I don't think! Did this just turn up in a testsuite run, or
did you actually try it with tracepoints, Corinna?
The assertion seems correct to me. The frame register number is going
to get sent to the remote target system. We shouldn't ever do that for
pseudo registers, because the target probably doesn't know how to
generate their contents... otherwise they'd be real registers.
