Subject[PATCH 2/5] perf/hw_breakpoint: Modify breakpoint even if the new attr has disabled set
Date
We need to change the breakpoint even if the attr with
new fields has disabled set to true.

Current code prevents following user code to change
the breakpoint address:

ptrace(PTRACE_POKEUSER, child, offsetof(struct user, u_debugreg[0]), addr_1)
ptrace(PTRACE_POKEUSER, child, offsetof(struct user, u_debugreg[0]), addr_2)
ptrace(PTRACE_POKEUSER, child, offsetof(struct user, u_debugreg[7]), dr7)

The first PTRACE_POKEUSER creates the breakpoint with
attr.disabled set to true:

ptrace_set_breakpoint_addr(nr = 0)
struct perf_event *bp = t->ptrace_bps[nr];

ptrace_register_breakpoint(..., disabled = true)
ptrace_fill_bp_fields(..., disabled)
register_user_hw_breakpoint

So the second PTRACE_POKEUSER will be omitted:

ptrace_set_breakpoint_addr(nr = 0)
struct perf_event *bp = t->ptrace_bps[nr];
struct perf_event_attr attr = bp->attr;

modify_user_hw_breakpoint(bp, &attr)
if (!attr->disabled)
modify_user_hw_breakpoint_check
