Hi Aaron,

Thanks for the patch, it does indeed seem bogus to me.

Some tips for the next time you want to submit a patch:

- Use git-send-email if possible, it makes it much easier to apply the patch
  (your patch has some lines wrapped, which makes it difficult to work with).
- Add a ChangeLog entry in your commit message.

You can find more details here: http://sourceware.org/gdb/wiki/ContributionChecklist

This patch was small enough that it was easy to re-do by hand, so don't worry
about it.  I made some small changes:

- Remove unnecessary curly braces that were there previously, to comply with the
  GNU coding style.
- Adjust the format string, since I had this compiler error:

/home/emaisin/src/binutils-gdb/gdb/remote.c:8725:32: error: format ‘%zu’ expects argument of type ‘size_t’, but argument 3 has type ‘int’ [-Werror=format=]
     len - REMOTE_DEBUG_MAX_CHAR);
                                ^

Other than that the patch is unchanged.  Are you ok with me pushing the
following patch on your behalf?

(Note that I took the liberty to Google your name, since you had only
 provided your email address :))

Subject: [PATCH] Fix misreporting of omitted bytes for large remote packets

In remote.c, when the output of "set debug remote" is truncated, the
number of characters reported is incorrect.  What is reported is the
number of characters added by the quoting, not the number of characters
that were truncated.

gdb/ChangeLog:

	* remote.c (putpkt_binary): Fix omitted bytes reporting.
	(getpkt_or_notif_sane_1): Likewise.
