This introduces common_get_thread_regcache so that we can simplify
nat/linux-btrace.c.  A better long term solution would be unify the
regcache code, but this is sufficient for now.

	* regcache.h (common_get_thread_regcache): Declare.
	* regcache.c (common_get_thread_regcache): New function.
	* nat/linux-btrace.h (common_get_thread_regcache): Declare.
	* nat/linux-btrace.c (perf_event_read_bts): Use
	common_get_thread_regcache.

When I think of "btrace" I don't think of "regcache".
Can common_get_thread_regcache go some place other than linux-btrace.h?

Also, why declare the function in two places?
I would expect it to be declared once in a common header.

Lastly, common_get_thread_regcache feels a bit weird as the name for
this function.  get_thread_regcache_for_ptid, or some such, feels better.

Cheers.

I renamed it get_thread_regcache_for_ptid and put it in its own
header, common/common-regcache.h.

Thanks,
