Let's not. Conditional compilation is bad... if it were more than a
single function, we could move it into its own file.
However, I think ia64_linux_new_thread's use should be taken as an
example. If I understand Jeff's patch correctly, a number of other
targets with hardware watchpoints will need it also.
