Yeah, I'm wondering about this too.

In this case, unfortunately, it's a bit more complicated to fix.  You
can find a similar workaround patch from Paul Brook in the archives,
and my discussion (with Mark?) about it.  The gdb<->sim interface uses
"signals", meaning the host signal numbers.  And without SIGTRAP we
can't step or breakpoint.  Thus, a lot of files in sim already define

They ought to be converted to the relatively new "gdb/signals.h" header
in include/, but the simulators are also concerned with actual host
signals in places, so a simple search and replace isn't right either.
It's going to take a little investigation to fix this properly.
