OK, so here's the patch I committed to address the two issues.

Re-tested with no regressions on arm-linux-gnueabi.

Bye,
Ulrich

ChangeLog:

	* linux-arm-low.c (struct arm_linux_hwbp_cap): Remove.
	(arm_linux_hwbp_cap): New static variable.
	(arm_linux_get_hwbp_cap): Replace by ...
	(arm_linux_init_hwbp_cap): ... this new function.
	(arm_linux_get_hw_breakpoint_count): Use arm_linux_hwbp_cap.
	(arm_linux_get_hw_watchpoint_count): Likewise.
	(arm_linux_get_hw_watchpoint_max_length): Likewise.
	(arm_arch_setup): Call arm_linux_init_hwbp_cap.
	(arm_prepare_to_resume): Use perror_with_name instead of error.
