This finally reverts this bit of commit 929dfd4f:

  2009-07-31  Pedro Alves  <pedro@codesourcery.com>
	      Julian Brown  <julian@codesourcery.com>

	 ...
	 (resume): If this is a software single-stepping arch, and
	 displaced-stepping is enabled, use it for all single-step
	 requests.
	 ...

That means that in non-stop (or really displaced-stepping) mode, on
software single-step archs - even those that only use sss breakpoints
to deal with atomic sequences, like PPC - if we have more than one
thread single-stepping, we'll always serialize the threads'
single-steps, as only one thread may be displaced stepping at a given
time, because there's only one scratch pad.

We originally did that because GDB didn't support having multiple
threads software-single-stepping simultaneously.  The previous patches
fixed that limitation, so we can now finally revert this too.

Tested on:

  - x86_64 Fedora 20, on top of the 'software single-step on x86'
    series.

	* infrun.c (resume): Don't force displaced-stepping for all
	single-steps on software single-stepping archs.
