Since I'm doing MIPS, I really can't punt on it for very long, so I'm
thinking some more about it now...

I'm considering adding gdbserv_{host,le,be}_signed_bytes_{to,from}_reg().
Another approach is to add a parameter (flag) to the existing functions
which indicate whether signed or unsigned extension should be done.
