Hi Antoine,

Could we generalize this even more to supports_single_step like your
next patch ?

I am not sure.

Since I'm working on software single stepping for ARM, if this patch
goes in I'll need to implement a supports_software_single_step and
enable ConditionalBreakpoints for this case too...

Nowadays, GDBserver only support conditional breakpoint for HW single
step target.  Whether GDBserver support conditional breakpoint for SW
single step target is a separate issue, and we can decide this once we
have SW single step in GDBserver.

Alright then, I'll base my patchset based on your patch and most likely add a supports_software_single_step, if it's in by the time I post most likely later this week...

I believe GDBserver can compute the next instruction of $PC for SW
single step, but GDBserver execution control (target independent part)
will be more complicated if SW single step is involved in.

Execution control for software single step is already present in GDBServer and working fine as far as I know...?
