commit 1e259e0a9982078896f3404240096cbea01daca4
Author: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@...il.com>

    hw-breakpoints: Remove stub unthrottle callback
    
    We support event unthrottling in breakpoint events. It means
    that if we have more than sysctl_perf_event_sample_rate/HZ,
    perf will throttle, ignoring subsequent events until the next
    tick.
    
    So if ptrace exceeds this max rate, it will omit events, which
    breaks the ptrace determinism that is supposed to report every
    triggered breakpoints. This is likely to happen if we set
    sysctl_perf_event_sample_rate to 1.
    
    This patch removes support for unthrottling in breakpoint
    events to break throttling and restore ptrace determinism.
