Ok, but please don't submit that patch upstream then. It's ok to
keep it in your own tree for the transitional phase, I assume
that you have other patches in there as well that are not submitted
yet. Once the new gdb is in use everywhere, you can just drop that
patch.

The problem with having this upstream is that this would create
a precedent for having the interface, and if people start relying
on it being there, we can't remove from upstream any more. If you
just have it in your private repository, we can just argue that it
was never officially supported.
