They are fixed in the updated patch below.  I'll commit it tomorrow if
no other objections.

That sounds good to me too.

+# bash$ make check RUNTESTFLAGS="--host_board=local-remote-host-native --target_board=local-remote-host-native HOST_DIR=/tmp/foo/"
+# We set both target board and host board together to test a native gdb
+# (host == target) on a remote host (host != build).  $HOST_DIR is the
+# directory for copying files to, to avoid messing up your HOME.  When
+# it is absent, files are copied to ./remote-host.
