Shouldn't we instead fix the logic of i386_stopped_data_address, to
get out of the loop on the first watchpoint that is found to be hit?
The function does not support more than one watchpoint anyway, so why
continue checking the bits in dr[6] after we've found one set already?

Would such a change fix your problem without the other complications?

Btw, I don't understand this part of i386_stopped_data_address:

  if (maint_show_dr && addr == 0)
    i386_show_dr ("stopped_data_addr", 0, 0, hw_write);

Isn't that backwards? why display the address if it is zero?
