This patch is to increase the threshold of printing this sentence.  Or we
may remove this print completely, because I can't figure out a case
some one wants to read many lines of `handling possible serial event'
in log.
I've found it more than once very useful when debugging non-stop/async mode
issues, where the order of serial and target events isn't predictable,
and knowing when a packet was just handled can help figure out
following weird behaviors.

If it bothers so much, I could go with outputting it only when non_stop is
on.  Just bumping is not good, because you can't set debug_thread to anything
other than 1 or 0 without recompiling gdbserver, and that's not good when
asking users for logs.

--debug=2 ?

Might as well invest, the poor code is getting plenty of use/abuse. :-)
