In order to allow breakpoints to emulate call instructions, they need to push
the return address onto the stack. The x86_64 int3 handler adds a small gap
to allow the stack to grow some. Use this gap to add the return address to
be able to emulate a call instruction at the breakpoint location.

These helper functions are added:

  int3_emulate_jmp(): changes the location of the regs->ip to return there.

 (The next two are only for x86_64)
  int3_emulate_push(): to push the address onto the gap in the stack
  int3_emulate_call(): push the return address and change regs->ip
