>Description:
"info files' when remote debugging an ARM target over TCP says "serial" twice rather than "TCP".  This is obviously not a big deal, but it is incorrect; even if the command can't tell the difference, just replacing the explicit mentions of "serial" with "remote" would suffice.
>How-To-Repeat:
Remote Step:

gdbserver :1234 /opt/palmos/tests/debugger/SimpleCall.kj


Host Steps: 
/opt/gdb-6.3/gdb/gdb /exported/device_root/opt/palmos/tests/debugger/SimpleCall.kj

In GDB:
set solib-absolute-prefix /exported/device_root/
target remote 192.168.2.101:1234
info files

Output;
Â…
Remote serial target in gdb-specific protocol:
Debugging a target over a serial line.
