Add the function lwp_is_stepping which indicates whether the given LWP
is currently single-stepping.  This is a common interface, usable from
native GDB as well as from gdbserver.

gdb/gdbserver/ChangeLog:

	* linux-low.c (lwp_is_stepping): New function.

gdb/ChangeLog:

	* nat/linux-nat.h (lwp_is_stepping): New declaration.
	* linux-nat.c (lwp_is_stepping): New function.

Hi Andreas,
Patch is good to me.  One nit below ...

"single-stepping" in hardware or software?  I know it is hardware single
step.

in gdbserver,
struct lwp_info
{
 ....
  /* If this flag is set, the last continue operation at the ptrace
     level on this process was a single-step.  */
  int stepping;

in gdb,
struct lwp_info
{
...
  /* Non-zero if we were stepping this LWP.  */
  int step;

Looks the comments in gdbservers is better than the comments in
gdb.  lwp_is_stepping, as an api, should be documented clearly.
Something like,

/* Return nonzero if we are single-stepping this LWP at the
    ptrace level.  */
