How does a JTAG/SWD debugger know when BKPT is executed?

The S_HALT bit of DHCSR will become set (indicating that the core has entered the 'debug halt' state) and the BKPT bit of DFSR will be set (indicating that a breakpoint event has occurred - this could either be a software or hardware breakpoint - check the value of PC to see where execution was stopped).
