tcl: introduce init_target_events and use it for gdb flashing events

This introduces a new global Tcl procedure that is run just after
init_targets and before init_boards.

Its default behaviour is to assign gdb-flash-erase-start and
gdb-flash-write-end to reasonable defaults.

The rationale for doing "reset init" before gdb erases and flashes
memory is that all flash drivers are written in assumption that they
can safely be used only after chip reset (plus chip-specific
configuration in the init handler if any). The need to use "reset
halt" after flashing is because a user expects running firmware after
loading to be the same as running it from power-on-reset.
