These patches just the RFC because I still not update the target-defined breakpoints packet handler.  When I make sure my new plan in http://sourceware.org/ml/gdb-patches/2012-10/msg00438.html is OK.  I will update these patches and post the new version.

According to Stan's mail, I change the name from autoload breakpoints to target-defined breakpoints.
And I change the "set breakpoint target-defined stub" to "set breakpoint target-defined target".

There are patches to make GDB support target-defined breakpoints.
It is:
1. it is set by the remote target.
2. The remote target can control target-defined breakpoints any time even if GDB is just control the inferior.
3. This support is for some special target.
