Blackfin arch: Add ability to expend the hardware trace buffer
Add ability to expend the hardware trace buffer via a configurable software buffer - so you can have lots of history when a crash occurs.

+ All Blackfins include a Trace Unit which stores a history of the last
+ 16 changes in program flow taken by the program sequencer. The history

+ help
+ The trace buffer can be configured to omit recording of changes in
+ program flow that match either the last entry or one of the last
+ two entries. Omitting one of these entries from the record prevents
+ the trace buffer from overflowing because of any sort of loop (for, do
+ while, etc) in the program.
+
+ Because zero-overhead Hardware loops are not recorded in the trace buffer,
+ this feature can be used to prevent trace overflow from loops that
