Because of those ^,

would it not make sense to have a prelimenary patch doing something
like:

__weak int hw_breakpoint_arch_check(struct perf_event *bp)
{
return arch_validate_hwbkpt_settings(bp);
}

__weak void hw_breakpoint_arch_commit(struct perf_event *bp)
{
}

combined with this bit:

And then convert the archs over one by one, and at the end remove the
weak thingies entirely?
