I can reproduce the hangs with native-gdbserver on s390x; at least for:

  display.exp
  step-over-trips-on-watchpoint.exp
  watchpoint-fork.exp
  watchpoints.exp

A bisect shows the culprit:

  https://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cgi?p=binutils-gdb.git;a=commit;h=c65d6b55

Before this commit I see many FAILs with these tests, but no hangs.
(The FAILs are due to lack of hardware watchpoint support for gdbserver
on s390.  At some time I had started a patch for that; maybe I should
revive it...)

Even knowing the first broken commit, I'm not sure yet what causes the
hangs.  I'll look more into that tomorrow.
