A Remote Serial Protocol Server for a native target isn't a complex
program. Some simple serial comms to get the packets, and then a switch
statement on the text in the packet. You might find it quicker and
easier to write (or adapt) one, rather than modifying gdbserver.
A while ago, I wrote a short application note of implementing Remote
Serial Protocol Servers, which includes example code you can freely use.
