The node name in parentheses should be on the same line as
gdb.texinfo.

> 	(Monitor Commands for gdbserver): Likewise.
> 	(gdbserver man): Likewise.

It is better to have a list of node names in parentheses, with only
one description, than having separate entries that say "Likewise".

I think it would be good to have here an additional index entry:

  @cindex @code{gdbserver}, send all debug output to a single file

> +The @option{--debug-file=filename} option tells @code{gdbserver} to
                            ^^^^^^^^
"filename" should be in @var here, as it is a parameter.

> +write any debug output to the given file.  These options are intended
                          ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
"to the given @var{filename}", so as to reference the parameter.

> +@item --debug-file=filename
> +Instruct @code{gdbserver} to send any debug output to the given file.

Same here.

The documentation changes are okay with these nits fixed.

Thanks.

Thanks.  The code parts of this are ok.

One little nit:

Alan> +  debug_file = fptr;
Alan> +  return;
Alan> +}

...this "return;" can be removed.
