Yep, I've been tempted to use that too.  But I think "use_gdb_stub"
is still something different.  It was meant to refer to those old
stubs like i386-stub.c, not to gdbserver.  There used to be some
magic that you had to do, like this in break.c:

main (int argc, char **argv, char **envp)
#ifdef usestubs
     set_debug_traps();  /* set breakpoint 5 here */

and "use_gdb_stubs" was the corresponding bit for the .exp file.

I don't think it applies (or should apply) to gdbserver.
