Here it is.  I'm putting this at the end of the series, after the
multi-target patches, because before multi-target, the test
fails -- GDB sends a spurious Hg0.0 packet to the remote side.

Subject: [PATCH] Switch the inferior too in switch_to_program_space_and_thread

With multi-target, each inferior now has its own target connection.
The problem in switch_to_program_space_and_thread is that in the
current state GDB switches to "no thread" and also sets the program
space but because the inferior is not switched, potentially an
incorrect target remains selected.

Here is a sample scenario that exploits this flow:

On terminal 1, start a gdbserver on a program named foo:

 $ gdbserver :1234 ./foo

On terminal 2, start gdb on a program named bar.  Suppose foo and bar
are compiled from foo.c and bar.c.  They are completely separate.  So,
bar.c:2 has no meaning for foo.

 $ gdb -q ./bar
 Reading symbols from ./bar...
 (gdb) add-inferior
 [New inferior 2]
 Added inferior 2
 (gdb) inferior 2
 [Switching to inferior 2 [<null>] (<noexec>)]
 (gdb) target remote :1234
 ...
 (gdb) set debug remote 2
 (gdb) break bar.c:2
 Sending packet: $Hgp0.0#ad...Packet received: OK
 Sending packet: $m5fa,12#f8...Packet received: E01
 Sending packet: $m5fa,1#c6...Packet received: E01
 Sending packet: $m5fb,3#c9...Packet received: E01
 Sending packet: $m5fe,1#ca...Packet received: E01
 Breakpoint 1 at 0x5fe: file bar.c, line 2.
 (gdb)

Here we have an unnecessary sending of the packets to the gdbserver.

With this fix in progspace-and-thread.c, we'll get this:

 (gdb) break bar.c:2
 Breakpoint 1 at 0x5fe: file bar.c, line 2.
 (gdb)

Now there is no sending of the packets to gdbserver.

gdb/ChangeLog:
yyyy-mm-dd  Aleksandar Paunovic  <aleksandar.paunovic@intel.com>
	    Pedro Alves  <palves@redhat.com>

	* progspace-and-thread.c (switch_to_program_space_and_thread):
	Assert there's an inferior for PSPACE.  Use
	switch_to_inferior_no_thread to switch the inferior too.

gdb/testsuite/ChangeLog:
yyyy-mm-dd  Pedro Alves  <palves@redhat.com>

	* gdb.server/bkpt-other-inferior.exp: New file.
