perf: Make bp_len type to u64 generic across the arch
Change 'bp_len' type to __u64 to make it work across archs as the s390 architecture watch point length can be upto 2^64. reference: http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/1/25/212 This is an ABI change that is not backward compatible with the previous hardware breakpoint info layout integrated in this development cycle, a rebuilt of perf tools is necessary for versions based on 2.6.33-rc1 - 2.6.33-rc6 to work with a kernel based on this patch.
