Hmm, if this shall become a KVM-only API, why the empty wrapper?

EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(hw_breakpoint_restore);

as KVM can be built as module.

TIF_DEBUG is only set on active ptrace hw-breakpoints, thus we miss
other types here, right? (Note: arch.switch_db_regs is guest-related,
thus does not help in this regard.)
