[patch 2/3] Kprobes IA64 cmp ctype unc support

From: Anil S Keshavamurthy <anil.s.keshavamurthy_at_intel.com>
Date: 2005-06-07 03:36:54
The current Kprobes when patching the original instruction
with the break instruction tries to retain the original
qualifying predicate(qp), however for cmp.crel.ctype where
ctype == unc, which is a special instruction always needs to be
executed irrespective of qp. Hence, if the instruction we are patching
is of this type, then we should not copy the original qp to 
the break instruction, this is because we always want the
break fault to happen so that we can emulate the instruction.

This patch is based on the feedback given by David Mosberger
