Subject[PATCH 146/173] repair gdbstub to match the gdbserial protocol specification
2.6.27.59-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com>

commit fb82c0ff27b2c40c6f7a3d1a94cafb154591fa80 upstream.

The gdbserial protocol handler should return an empty packet instead
of an error string when ever it responds to a command it does not
implement.

The problem cases come from a debugger client sending
qTBuffer, qTStatus, qSearch, qSupported.

The incorrect response from the gdbstub leads the debugger clients to
not function correctly. Recent versions of gdb will not detach correctly as a result of this behavior.
