Subject: [PATCH 2/5] ptrace/powerpc: Revert "hw_breakpoints: Fix racy
	access to ptrace breakpoints"

This reverts commit 07fa7a0a8a586c01a8b416358c7012dcb9dc688d and
removes ptrace_get/put_breakpoints() added by other commits.

The patch was fine but we can no longer race with SIGKILL after
9899d11f "ptrace: ensure arch_ptrace/ptrace_request can never race
with SIGKILL", the __TASK_TRACED tracee can't be woken up and
->ptrace_bps[] can't go away.
