Changes in PTRACE_POKEUSER hw breakpoint have broken several games that are
being ran through wine.
I must point out that I did not do the bisect, the OP in the wine bug
report below did that.
I brought this here because of the dislike among developers in breaking
user space.  I don't
know how to proceed from here. Either, wine should adopt code changes or
the commit below should
be reverted.

    perf/hw_breakpoint: Modify breakpoint even if the new attr has disabled
