Please try enabling "set print inferior-events on".  With native
debugging, we currently get:

 (gdb) detach
 Detaching from program: /home/pedro/gdb/tests/main, process 15759
 [Inferior 15759 detached]

However, with target extended-remote, we get:

 (gdb) tar extended-remote :9999
 (gdb) detach
 Detaching from program: /home/pedro/gdb/tests/main, process 15789
 [Inferior 15789 exited]

And with target remote, we get nothing:

 (gdb) tar remote :9999
 0x0000003615a011f0 in _start () from target:/lib64/
 (gdb) detach
 Detaching from program: /home/pedro/gdb/tests/main, process 15767
 Ending remote debugging.

With your patch, we'll print "exited" in the remote case too,
when it seems to me that in both extended-remote and remote
we should be saying "detached" like in the native case.

Also, if the user does "disconnect", after your patch gdb will
say the inferiors we were debugging "exited" while they were
left running on the target side.  Is that confusing?
