The tracepoint support in GDBserver is pretty generic, and if you don't 
need fast tracepoints, there's not really anything that is arch-specific.

I would suggest enabling target_supports_tracepoints for ppc and letting 
us know how it goes.  If it "just works", then we could change the 
target_supports_tracepoints test to make it unconditional - fast 
tracepoint support has its own availability check at runtime, it could 
subsume the architecture check.
