Subject[PATCH 06/12] hw-breakpoints: use the new wrapper routines to access debug registers in process/thread code
Date
From: K.Prasad <prasad@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

This patch enables the use of abstract debug registers in
process-handling routines, according to the new hardware breakpoint
Api.

[ Impact: adapt thread breakpoints handling code to the new breakpoint Api ]
