I'm looking at implementing restartable atomic sequences for
PowerPC but I ran into a few issues that need clarification.
The first is what happends if a trap happens withing a RAS
that's supposed to invoke the debugger? Do I dismiss the
trap? Ignore the breakpoint? kill the process? What if
someone issue a trap instruction (breakpoint) while inside
a RAS? ignore the breakpoint?
