hw-breakpoints: Use struct perf_event_attr to define kernel breakpoints
Frederic Weisbecker [Fri, 27 Nov 2009 03:55:54 +0000 (04:55 +0100)]
Kernel breakpoints are created using functions in which we pass
breakpoint parameters as individual variables: address, length
and type.

Although it fits well for x86, this just does not scale across
architectures that may support this api later as these may have
more or different needs. Pass in a perf_event_attr structure
instead because it is meant to evolve as much as possible into
a generic hardware breakpoint parameter structure.
