K.Prasad - May 24, 2010, 4:03 a.m.
A signal delivered between a hw_breakpoint_handler() and the
single_step_dabr_instruction() will not have the breakpoint active during
signal handling (since breakpoint will not be restored through single-stepping
due to absence of MSR_SE bit on the signal frame). Enable breakpoints before
signal delivery and clear them during sigreturn() syscall.

Limitation: Nested hw-breakpoint exceptions (where second exception is raised
inside signal context) will cause a 'double-hit' i.e. the first breakpoint
exception will be taken twice.

Restore hw-breakpoints if the user-context is altered in the signal handler
(causing loss of MSR_SE).
Side-effect: 'Double-hit' of breakpoint if the instruction pointer is
unaltered in the new context.
