[This is a replacement for the patch "gdbserver: Add option to ignore
SO_REUSEADDR".  The issue is the same, but the root cause is different].

When launching gdbserver, the testsuite checks for binding failure but
does not check for failure to listen to socket error (which can happen
due to another gdbserver binding to the socket at the same time).

When this error occurs, the test will ignore the error and connect GDB
to the failed port.  This may succeed and GDB will now be connected to
the gdbserver from another test.  This eventually causes both tests to
fail.

When running the tests suite with native-gdbserver across many cores,
this issue may happen once or twice, each causing random failures for
two .exp testscripts.

Example gdb.log output for the failure:

The testsuite sucessfully notices a failure to connect to port 2348.
It launches again with port 2349, which also fails.  The testsuite
ignores this error and uses gdb to connect to the port - which succeeds.

I remember having to touch this code when I was implementing the IPv6
feature, and I think your patch makes perfect sense.  It LGTM, but I'm
not a global maintainer.

Great, I was scratching my head over that one.

Typo: "tries" :-D

Patch is OK.

Thanks,
