SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/6] hw_breakpoint: Factor out __modify_user_hw_breakpoint function

struct perf_event_attr is very much a finite data type.

Something as simple as:

struct perf_event_attr tmp1 = new_attr, tmp2 = event->attr;

tmp1.bp_type = tmp2.bp_type;
tmp1.bp_addr = tmp2.bp_addr;
tmp1.bp_len = tmp2.bp_len;

if (memcmp(&tmp1, &tmp2, sizeof(tmp1)))
return -EINVAL;

would actually do the checks __modify_user_hw_breakpoint() needs to do.
