Export a breakpoint() function to userland.
Needs ReviewPublic

As a result, expand coverage of tests using breakpoint() to more

Test Plan
  • I have not tested any of these, so testing by others and/or review would be welcome. I would probably commit these separately, but they are glummed together in the branch this is part of so it's a bit easier to solicit review/testing with a combined patch.

This matches GDB5_BREAKPOINT from sys/arm/include/trap.h and it is what GDB uses as the default breakpoint instructions for non-thumb arm:


The in-kernel breakpoint() uses .word with the value of KERNEL_BREAKPOINT and I just used that as my template.

It seems to be udf 0xfdee. udf is an instruction that raises the undefined instruction exception.
