sh, hw_breakpoints: Fix racy access to ptrace breakpoints
While the tracer accesses ptrace breakpoints, the child task may concurrently exit due to a SIGKILL and thus release its breakpoints at the same time. We can then dereference some freed pointers. To fix this, hold a reference on the child breakpoints before manipulating them.
