Check that hardware watchpoints get correctly replicated to all
existing threads when hardware watchpoints are created. This test
creates one hardware watchpoint per thread until a maximum is
reached. It originally addresses a deficiency seen on embedded
powerpc targets with slotted hardware *point designs.
