That makes sense, although I am a bit hesitant about such a change,
since target_pre_inferior has a lot of callers.  Is it OK, for
instance, to assume that current_inferior points to the right inferior
when target_pre_inferior gets called?  Currently current_inferior is
not called directly or indirectly from target_pre_inferior.

I wonder how this attach_flag issues manifests itself elsewhere, if at all.
