Believe it or not, we're just working on a generic solution to this type of
situation that will allow a loaded application to claim the
console/debugging virtual vectors

But for now I believe you should be able to enable the option
CYGDBG_HAL_DIAG_DISABLE_GDB_PROTOCOL, which should turn off GDB packet
encoding in the MBX hal diag output (assuming you have not explicitly
enabled virtual vector diag).
