this assumes the target/arch has continuable watchpoints,
like x86/x86_64. You'll see this misbehave on mips, when Hui
contributes the support.
You're evaluating the watchpoint expression on every event --- I
have a feeling it would make more sense to decouple precord from
that, like all other targets are decoupled. That is, have precord
check for low level watchpoint triggers --- given [addr,length,type]
low level watchpoints --- when memory changes (at record_mem_entry time),
instead of evaluating the whole high-level watchpoint expression.
[IMO, we should mostly think of precord as just another a
simulator that mostly only interfaces gdb's core through
the target_ methods.]
