IMO this isn't necessary - if someone tunnels a reliable TCP/IP
connection from their stub, to gdb, via an unreliable channel, then
they can read the manual and disable this feature.  I've never
encountered this.  At that point you're not running directly off a
target board's UART at system level, so you have the option of
something like PPP.
