As a dumb Linux programmer who has peeked briefly into gdbserver's code,
I vote for declaring gdbserver totally broken on all platforms
if that's what it takes to get it fixed up cleanly.
I would of course prefer that Linux be the first OS the new
gdbserver is developed for :-) For what it's worth,
I would like to use it with ppc405, ppc750, and sh4.
My users are starting to scream for it...
