kgdb: Always process the whole breakpoint list on activate or deactivate
This patch fixes 2 edge cases in using kgdb in conjunction with gdb. 1) kgdb_deactivate_sw_breakpoints() should process the entire array of breakpoints. The failure to do so results in breakpoints that you cannot remove, because a break point can only be removed if its state flag is set to BP_SET. The easy way to duplicate this problem is to plant a break point in a kernel module and then unload the kernel module. 2) kgdb_activate_sw_breakpoints() should process the entire array of breakpoints. The failure to do so results in missed breakpoints when a breakpoint cannot be activated. Signed-off-by: Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com>
