Subject[015/139] x86,kgdb: Always initialize the hw breakpoint attribute
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com>

commit ab310b5edb8b601bcb02491ed6f7676da4fd1757 upstream.

It is required to call hw_breakpoint_init() on an attr before using it
in any other calls. This fixes the problem where kgdb will sometimes
fail to initialize on x86_64.
