Re: [PATCH 06/10] Replace breakpoint_reinsert_addr by get_next_pcs operation in GDBServer.

ITYM mean a _conditional_ branch instruction.

Missing period in last line.  (Pedantically, AFAICS, in this patch,
nothing in gdb includes common/get-next-pcs.h, and nothing
in gdbserver includes symtab.h.  So seems like putting the VEC
in common/gdb_vecs.h here is premature.)

There should be an intro comment mentioning the purpose of
this structure.

This field should be documented too.

Formatting.  Variable should be declared in the declaration block
along with the others, and then there should be a line break.

Is there a reason to allocate upfront instead of setting it to NULL?

At some point we should do a pass and rename "reinsert breakpoint"
to "software single-step breakpoint" throughout.  It's no longer
just about reinserting a breakpoint that we step over.
