Certainly ALMOST all the architecture-specific stuff we've factored out
of the old uprobes resides in ubp. Because of how it exploits utrace,
uprobes also needs to know what signals to expect from breakpoint traps
and single-step traps. (E.g., the "breakpoint signal" in s390 is
SIGILL.)

I have no objection to moving BREAKPOINT_SIGNAL and SSTEP_SIGNAL
to .../asm/ubp.h, even though ubp doesn't actually use them. But until
we port ubp to other architectures, we won't know for sure whether we've
done a complete job of capturing all the arch-specific stuff there.
