Right, I'll try to do a smoother transition as in Peterz suggestion.
I'm just going to pass around the struct arch_hw_breakpoint to avoid code
duplication in check and commit. The end result may look like:

struct arch_hw_breakpoint hw;
int err;

err = hw_breakpoint_arch_parse(bp, attr, &hw);
if (err)
return err;

.....

bp->hw.info = hw;
