In this test case, ( \\((host|target) evals\\))? isn't needed in the
pattern.  What we test here is to save breakpoints into file and restore
them from file.  The contents saved in file are:

break save-bp.c:31
  condition $bpnum i == 1

the information about the place where the condition is evaluated isn't
saved, so we don't need to check.  Breakpoint save and restore has
nothing to do with where the condition is evaluated (host or target).  I
am fine to leave it here now.
