Hi Chris, meet Vladimir. Hi Vladimir, meet Chris. I suggest one of
you combine this with Vladimir's recently pending patch to unify new
thread printing in a single place for all targets.
BTW, the new test would fail for GNU/Linux + gdbserver; that doesn't
yet have any way to notify new threads, unlike the native support.
