hw-breakpoints: reset bits in dr6 after the corresponding exception is handled
This patch resets the bit in dr6 after the corresponding exception is handled in code, so that we keep a clean track of the current virtual debug status register. [ Impact: keep track of breakpoints triggering completion ] Signed-off-by: K.Prasad <prasad@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com>
