Yes. But load_lib will not reload an already loaded file - we have
some board files which check if $tool == "gdb", and load_lib
mi-support.exp themselves, and use "rename". I didn't say it was
pretty or the right way!
True. It means that load_lib mi-support.exp can safely stay in the testcases,
and who needs to override something from there should add 'load_lib
mi-support.exp' in their baseboard file and then rewrite the function (or use
rename) after load_lib.
I would still like to see changes to mi-support.exp go in to make it more
in-line with gdb.exp; I think "rename" would be avoided in most of the cases.
Nothing critical though...
