powerpc: Hardware breakpoints rewrite to handle non DABR breakpoint registers
This is a rewrite so that we don't assume we are using the DABR throughout the code. We now use the arch_hw_breakpoint to store the breakpoint in a generic manner in the thread_struct, rather than storing the raw DABR value. The ptrace GET/SET_DEBUGREG interface currently passes the raw DABR in from userspace. We keep this functionality, so that future changes (like the POWER8 DAWR), will still fake the DABR to userspace.
