Other than the nit I just sent a patch for it looks fine.

I looked at the powerpc patches. The only "difficult" part to
forward-port is the debug register checkpoint/restart code. 
It's more difficult because additional debug register support has
since been added to the kernel and those ought to be supported
by c/r too.

I think we'd be better off splitting that out the debug register
c/r code into a separate patch. We can just error ou if it's obvious
that debug registers have been setup. An untested patch for erroring
out is forthcoming. For now I'll let Nathan look into adding the new
debug register support.

Cheers,
