Sure, no problem.

It fixes the same issue in gdbserver that was fixed in gdb.

Not really! I believed that the gdb patch had been committed to the
stable branch but later discovered that it hadn't. As the stable
branch appeared to be dormant I didn't follow up on it. Ideally both
patches should be applied and if we are going to do another release
I'm happy to cherry pick it across.
