GDB stuff

See previous post[1].

How to connect this to a server application?  Let's make a small C app
that handles requests by waiting for a single write on a named pipe,
and writing back a reply on another.

The thing is.. it's a lot simpler to just exec GDB from the C app, and
use the --annotate=3 protocol that's also used in emacs.

EDIT: Tried the exec GDB approach for a closed project.  Works well!
Main benefit is that test system and target system share the same
language + code base while running on different hosts.
