[PATCH] remote: Avoid unwanted shlib internal BPs When debugging Linux kernel or u-boot with Abatron BDI emulator an error occurs:

(gdb) tar remote bdi:2001
Remote debugging using bdi:2001
0xeff80050 in ?? ()
(gdb) mon reset
(gdb) cont
Cannot insert breakpoint -1.
Error accessing memory address 0xc0000000: Unknown error 4294967295.

-1      shlib events   keep y   0xc0000000 <_stext> inf 1

gdb mistakenly inserts a special shared library BP even though
there area no such libs in either linux or u-boot.

Fix this by explicitly informing remote_add_inferior() that
the remote is attached.
