I'm not sure the existing lldb-server tests will be of much help here.
What the existing tests do is *test the server* by driving it with a
*specialized client* which verifies the server behavior. If I
understand correctly, here you would want to *test the client*
behavior when communicating with a *custom server*. Right now we don't
have any tests of this sort, although it would be very good to have
them -- we get patches to support all kinds of remote stubs, but we
have no way to verify that the next patch does not break any previous
ones. The low level details can be tested with a
gdbremotecommunicationclient unit tests (like you did with the
previous patch), but I don't think there is anything that would
capture interactions at a slightly higher level.
