Hi,

from the discussions that followed
https://sourceware.org/ml/gdb-patches/2017-12/msg00374.html, regarding
buildings that were taking much longer than the expected, noticed that
gdb.threads/process-dies-while-handling-bp.exp is hanging on ppc64[le] when
testing native-gdbserver, leading the testrun to take hours until it is
timed out. According to git bisect, it seems it started to happen after
this commit:

https://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cgi?p=binutils-gdb.git;a=commit;h=173981

However, I couldn't figure out what exactly might be root cause of this
behavior. Also, the same doesn't happen on default (non-gdbserver)
testsuite run. Any idea/suggestion?

Thanks and regards,
Edjunior
