Re: [RFC Patch 1/9] Introducing generic hardware breakpoint handler interfaces

I'd just like to point out that not all hardware breakpoints
involve addresses. For example:

The OLPC XO uses an x86 processor called the Geode.
It supports a breakpoint that traps based on the opcode.
For example, one could set it to trap on arpl instructions.
