K.Prasad - June 15, 2010, 6:05 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.

Restore hw-breakpoints if the user-context is altered in the signal handler.

[With inputs from Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> which helped identify a
need to restore breakpoints before handling a signal delivered in certain
cases]
