If gdb is restarted, kgdb has to remove all breakpoints. Present kgdb does
that in the code this patch removes:

- if (remcom_in_buffer[0] == 'H' && remcom_in_buffer[1] == 'c') {
- remove_all_break();
- atomic_set(&kgdb_killed_or_detached, 0);
- ok_packet(remcom_out_buffer);
If we don't remove breakpoints, they stay in kgdb without gdb not knowing it
and causes consistency problems.

We have to check for gdb connection in putpacket or else following problem
occurs.

1. kgdb console messages are to be put.
2. gdb dies
3. putpacket writes the packet and waits for a '+'
4. new gdb sends a protocol initialization packet
5. putpacket reads characters in that packet hoping for an incoming '+'
sending out console message packet on each incoming character
6. gdb receives and rejects each console message packet

> - Remove ok_packet(), excessive, IMHO.

ok_packet is better than littering "OK" all over the place.

Other lindent changes are good.
