I don't know what your new target does, so I can't answer that for you.

You don't.  Do you _really_ need to implement a new target in gdb?
Why not teach the remote end the RSP instead?  Then you can
use "target remote", without adding new code to gdb.

I'm confused.  What documents?  I only pointed you at the GDB manual,
to check the RSP documentation.  Here:
