Until version J14 the behaviour of ST-Link was to send a reset
pulse to the target when the debug connection is started in JTAG
mode. No reset pulse is sent, instead, in SWD mode.
Version J15 introduces a new parameter to avoid the reset pulse in
JTAG mode, aligning the behaviour with SWD.

This reset from the ST-Link, if propagated to the target, prevents
attaching a running target.

Actually this reset pulse is very short (few microsecond) and can
be easily filtered out by an on-board capacitor, usually present
on the reset wire (mainly to filter the bounces of the reset
button). Moreover, most of the use cases for ST-Link are with SWD
(not with JTAG) and this has probably further masked this JTAG
specific behaviour.

OpenOCD can tolerate it but requires the flag "connect_assert_srst"
to the command "reset_config", but the flag is not present in any
configurations in folder tcl. This enforces the guess it was not
noticed due to on-board capacitors or missing connection of reset
pin or ST-Link only used in SWD; so it's safe applying this patch.

Change the default behaviour to avoid reset in JTAG at connection.
There is no need to manage the ST-Link version here, since every
parameter that is not recognized by older ST-Link is treated as
"connect in JTAG with reset pulse", keeping backward compatibility.
