Subject[PATCH 3.18 40/93] perf/hwbp: Simplify the perf-hwbp code, fix documentation
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

commit f67b15037a7a50c57f72e69a6d59941ad90a0f0f upstream.

Annoyingly, modify_user_hw_breakpoint() unnecessarily complicates the
modification of a breakpoint - simplify it and remove the pointless
local variables.

Also update the stale Docbook while at it.
