Can you explain more about that breakpoint stuff ? Why is it a special case here at all ? Isn't it 
the same when you switch from one user task to another one ? x86 commit doesn't say anythink about 
breakpoints.

not sure about the naming.

Maybe start_using_temp_mm() and stop_using_temp_mm() would be more explicit.

You'll probably get a bisecting hasard with those unused 'static inline' functions in a .c file 
because that patch alone probably fails build.
