It is because the qemu you are using does not support hardware
breakpoints. The tests will warn, but the kernel will continue to boot
and tell you that hw breakpoint support doesn't work on your simulated
hardware.

Also, if you plan to use software breakpoints, please make sure to turn
off CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA, else they will not work. This is a regression
which will is on my list of things to take a look at, as time permits.

Cheers,
Jason.
