Unfortunatly this isn't the right way to go.  Because it is now possible 
for GDB can have more than one active architecture, code that rely on 
global state can no longer work.  The globals:

 > +      h8300_normal_mode = 0;
 > +      h8300sxmode = 0;
 > +      h8300smode = 0;
 > +      h8300hmode = 0;

will need to be eliminated.  Looking at your patch it doesn't look too 
bad.  Given h8300smode, I'd replace it with a function vis:

int
h8300smode (struct gdbarch *gdbarch)
{
   return gdbarch_bfd_arch_info (current_gdbarch)->mach == bfd_mach_h8300s
}

and called:
	
	if (h8300smode (current_gdbarch))
