Hardware breakpoints when using i386 simulator

I'm using gdb 5.0 to debug an os kernel running on an i386 simulator
called bochs. The bochs remote stub supports hardware breakpoints but
instead of sending a request, gdb tries to set breakpoints as if the
program was running locally. I'd like to fix this, my initial idea was
that i386_insert_watchpoint should check if the current target is a remote
one and call remote_insert_watchpoint. Is this the right approach?
