While I have seen it only on i386<->x86_64 it should be the same problem:
15. When connecting to gdbserver I get Remote register badly formatted, g packet
    reply to long etc.
Your gdb 32bit/64bit architecture setting may not match that of gdbserver. Try
to load the executable by file first. You may also check set/show architecture.
