This patch is an update to extended-remote exec event documentation.
The only change from the previous version is to document the
'set/show remote exec-event-feature-packet' commands in the NEWS
file.

-----

This patch adds documentation of support for exec events on
extended-remote Linux targets.

Thanks,
