This patch enables software single stepping if the targets support it,
to do while-stepping actions.

No regressions, tested on ubuntu 14.04 ARMv7 and x86.
With gdbserver-{native,extended} / { -marm -mthumb }

gdb/gdbserver/ChangeLog:

	* linux-low.c (single_step): New function.
	(linux_resume_one_lwp_throw): Call single_step.
	(start_step_over): Likewise.
