Standard gdb can do this.  It is called gdbserver, and it has been a part of
gdb since 1993.

Before we had hardware, initial gdb work was done by running gdbserver under
linux on the simulator, and then connecting to it via tcp/ip from a cross-gdb
running on an x86-linux machine.  This was much faster than trying to run an
interactive gdb session under linux on the simulator.

The IA-64 gdbserver support is still there, but I don't know if anyone has
used it since we got hardware.  See the src/gdb/gdbserver directory in the
FSF GDB source tree.
