 MDI support provides its own logging facility which lets the user ask for 
commands issued to GDB to be passed down to the target.  The target may 
than place these commands within its own log file (which will typically 
provide additional data beyond the scope of GDB itself, such as the record 
of transactions performed at the JTAG port) which lets one see what 
actions at the target result from each of the GDB command.  Useful for 
debugging the MDI target itself.

 Being self-contained I resisted from submitting this change together with 
MDI not to obfuscate the view.  I should be able to submit the MDI change 
pretty soon now, though I have to take your suggestion on the handling of 
threads first.
