ARC: Ignore ptrace SETREGSET request for synthetic register "stop_pc"
ARCompact TRAP_S insn used for breakpoints, commits before exception is taken (updating architectural PC). So ptregs->ret contains next-PC and not the breakpoint PC itself. This is different from other restartable exceptions such as TLB Miss where ptregs->ret has exact faulting PC. gdb needs to know exact-PC hence ARC ptrace GETREGSET provides for @stop_pc which returns ptregs->ret vs. EFA depending on the situation. However, writing stop_pc (SETREGSET request), which updates ptregs->ret doesn't makes sense stop_pc doesn't always correspond to that reg as described above. This was not an issue so far since user_regs->ret / user_regs->stop_pc had same value and both writing to ptregs->ret was OK, needless, but NOT broken, hence not observed. With gdb "jump", they diverge, and user_regs->ret updating ptregs is overwritten immediately with stop_pc, which this patch fixes.
