Subject[PATCH 1/1] hw_breakpoints: fix locking in load_debug_registers
Date
load_debug_registers is called with interrupts disabled from
many contexts and causes a warning to be dropped, e.g.:
------------[ cut here ]------------
WARNING: at kernel/softirq.c:143 local_bh_enable_ip+0x75/0xa0()
Hardware name: To Be Filled By O.E.M.

Fix it by switching from spin_lock_bh to spin_lock_irqsave and
removing nested local_irq_save.
