    Subject[38/63] sh: Fix ptrace hw_breakpoint handling
    2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: David Engraf <>

    commit fb7f045ace0624f1e59a7db8497e460bd54b1cbc upstream.

    Since commit 34d0b5af50a063cded842716633501b38ff815fb it is no longer
    possible to debug an application using singlestep. The old commit
    converted singlestep handling via ptrace to hw_breakpoints. The
    hw_breakpoint is disabled when an event is triggered and not re-enabled
    again. This patch re-enables the existing hw_breakpoint before the
    existing breakpoint is reused.
