    Subject[PATCH 0/4] kgdb regression fixes for 2.6.33
    I would like to get acks from the respective parties to fix these
    reported regressions against kgdb in 2.6.33.

    I imagine the constraints for the hw breakpoint API is possibly still
    a dicey issue, so it is split into its own patch. Even without the
    constraints patch it is possible to use hw breakpoints in the kernel
    debugger in the same manner that has existed since 2.6.26 (only kgdb
    gets to use hw breakpoints).

    The regression are:
    * hw breakpoints no longer work on x86 after the perf API merge
    * clocksource watchdog can dead lock while in the kernel debugger
    * softlockup watchdog can reboot the system while using the kernel debugger

    I collected all the patches which could go into the tip branch or the
    kgdb for_linus branch at the following location depending on the
    status of the discussion that ensues.
