Hi All,
Please find a set of patches that implement the following:

Patch 1/2: Allow per-cpu kernel-space Hardware Breakpoint requests
Patch 2/2: Allow kernel breakpoints to be modified through a new API

During discussion on LKML, these features were deemed necessary for
effective exploitation of hardware breakpoints by perf-tools.

The patches are based off -tip tree. Kindly let me know your comments
on the same.
