[PATCH, RFC]: Change order of setting i386 debug registers

> FreeBSD/i386 does some strict checking on the debug registers before
> setting them. This conflicts a bit with the order in which the code
> in i386-nat.c tries to set the registers. The attached patch fixes
> these problems by changing the order in which we modify the
> registers. Instead of enabling an address register before storing the
> proper address in it, after the patch, we will first store the address
> and then enable the address register. This seems more correct to me.
You are right; it was my mistake not to do it that way in the first
> Any objections to checking this in?
