SubjectRe: [PATCH -tip v3 4/7] kprobes: Ignore break_handler

I changed this description to:

============
Subject: kprobes: Don't call the ->break_handler() in generic kprobes code

Don't call the ->break_handler() from the core kprobes code, because it was only
used by jprobes which got removed.

( In a followup patch we'll remove the remaining calls in low level
arch handlers as well and remove the callback altogether. )
============

Please try to be a lot less vague in changelogs when it's possible and relevant!

I.e. saying "Ignore break_handler related code" is annoyingly vague, it doesn't
explain things well at all. Saying "Don't call the ->break_handler()" is just as
compact, yet it also makes it very clear what's done in the patch...

Thanks,

Ingo
