target_has_execution doesn't mean that the target is executing. It is
a total misnomer to indicate that the gdb target stratum is capable of
execution. I think what you want is target_has_registers.
Arrrgh! That problem, core file's also has registers ... so right
theory, I've no idea on which thing to use in the test though.
