[PATCH v2 2/2] Only leave dprintf inserted if it is marked as persistent (PR breakpoints/17012)

On Linux native, if dprintf are inserted when detaching, they are left
in the inferior which causes it to crash from a SIGTRAP. It also happens
with dprintfs on remote targets, when set disconnected-dprintf is off.

I believe that the rationale of the line I modified was to leave dprinfs
inserted in order to support disconnected dprintfs. This adds a check to
see if the dprintf should actually stay inserted or not.

bl->target_info.persist will be 1 only if disconnected-dprintf is on and
we are debugging a remote target. On native, it will always be 0,
regardless of the value of disconnected-dprintf. This makes sense, since
disconnected dprintfs are not supported by the native target.
