Multiple remote inferiors

Hi Pedro,

thanks for your answer, I gave it a try, but it seems to behave a bit strangely.

--> should it be possible to start _two different_ processes from a
single GDBServer ?

here is what I got (debugging functionPtr and stackoverflow):

> $ gdbserver :1234 functionPtr
> Process functionPtr created; pid = 10820
> Listening on port 1234
> Remote debugging from host 127.0.0.1
> Process functionPtr created; pid = 10825

GDBServer tries to start  functionPtr twice, as confirmed by the `pstree'

> $ pstree | grep functionPtr
>    .... bash---gdbserver---2*[functionPtr]

is it a bug or <del>a feature</del> a wrong usage of GDB ?


but ultimately, what I would like to do is connecting GDB to two
*different* gdbservers, ie maintain two TCP connections
simultaneously.
