I have just put in the changes by Stuart Menefy <stuart.menefy at> to
update the SH support.  This will shortly be in a 4.4.96 test release.
Stuart's changes addressed the -f behavior.  Please reconcile the new code
in CVS with whatever changes you have and send in any remaining fixes you have.

The new setbpt/clearbpt code indeed works by just changing the registers
that give the system call number and arguments to force a clone call using
CLONE_PTRACE.  You don't need to worry about how that works in the kernel
per se, just that the new code is correctly accessing the registers used
for system call arguments.
