2005-02-28  Jeff Johnston  <jjohnstn@redhat.com>

	* config/i386/nm-linux.h: Change dr register routines to
	accept a ptid_t first argument.  Change all calling macros
	to default the inferior_ptid for the first argument.
	(i386_linux_insert_watchpoint): New prototype.
	(i386_linux_remove_watchpoint, i386_linux_insert_hw_breakpoint): Ditto.
	(i386_linux_remove_hw_breakpoint): Ditto.
	(target_insert_watchpoint, target_remove_watchpoint): Undef and
	override.
	(target_insert_hw_breakpoint, target_remove_hw_breakpoint): Ditto.
	* config/i386/nm-linux64.h: Ditto except add amd64 versions of
	the watchpoint/hw-breakpoint insert/remove routines.
	* i386-nat.c: Include "inferior.h" to define inferior_ptid.
	* i386-linux-nat.c: Change all dr get/set routines to accept
	ptid_t as first argument and to use this argument to determine
	the tid for PTRACE.
	(i386_linux_set_debug_regs_for_thread): New function.
	(i386_linux_sync_debug_registers_callback): Ditto.
	(i386_linux_sync_debug_registers_across_threads): Ditto.
