I'm intrigued by this line, line 276 in arch/ppc/kernel/process.c in
#if defined(CONFIG_4xx) && defined(DCRN_PLB0_BEAR) && defined(DCRN_PLB0_BEAR)
When could we have DCRN_PLB0_BEAR defined but DCRN_PLB0_BEAR not? :)
Could it ever be defined if CONFIG_4xx was not defined?
Which brings up another question that I have been meaning to ask: what
is the rationale for adding the dbcr0/1 fields to the ptrace struct
Since struct ptrace is part of the kernel/user ABI, I prefer not to
change it unless it is absolutely necessary. Could the dbcr0/1 fields
go in the thread_struct instead? Where and how are they used?
