I'll create a version 3 of my patch (stripped down) and ask binutils and
libiberty owners.

I'll look into the other issue too (whether it would be possible to do
the right thing when setting the variable in the middle of a session).

Question : it looks like breaking a gdb-gdbserver session always kills
the inferior. Or at least it does so on my target. Has this been subject
of research yet ? I would expect it to be possible to detach without
killing the inferior, much like you can when debugging a linux process
from a linux gdb.
