What will you need?  A macro to get the debug registers for a pid
and one to put 'em back?

It isn't.  GDB doesn't call go32_insert_aligned_watchpoint,
go32_insert_unaligned_watchpoint and so on.  They are only called from the
go32_insert_watchpoint, go32_remove_watchpoint in go32-nat.c (And
go32_insert_watchpoint, go32_remove_watchpoint are called from macros
in tm-xxx.h or nm-xxx,h).

My comments refer to the version labeled '1.6' in the cvsweb.  Is there
a later one I could look at?  (Only if you want, please tell me to go
away if I'm wasting your time).

So you're going to have your own defines for DR_... and not use the
system ones?  I guess that was why your code didn't match up to what
I find in sys/debugreg.h on my system.
