As a comment for anyone who wants to pursue fixing this. This code is the target side of the remote debug stub for gdb. We copied this from somewhere else (likely gdb itself). I did a quick search for newer versions and found it in both the Android and Applen open source repositories.

My recommendation would be to update this by importing some more modern version and testing it.
GDB has added commands to the protocol and it is likely a newer version will already support them.

The stub has a number of changes including hardware breakpoint support so a drop in needs a check of existing functionality. The BSP needs to be removed and changed to a 64bit x86 BSP.
