In a multi-target environment we are supposed to have a single
gdb server for each target (or for each group of targets within
a SMP node).
By default, the gdb attached to a server sends its command to
the target (or to the SMP node targets) linked to that server.

This is working fine for the normal gdb commands, but it is
broken for the native OpenOCD commands executed through gdb
"monitor" command. In the latter case, gdb "monitor" commands
will be executed on the current target of OpenOCD configuration
script (that is either the last target created or the target
specified in a "targets" command).

Fixed in gdb_new_connection() by replacing the current target
in the connection's copy of command context.
