Subjectx86: do_debug && PTRACE_SINGLESTEP broken by 08d68323d1f0c34452e614263b212ca556dae47f
Hi.

do_debug() is obviously wrong wrt PTRACE_SINGLESTEP/TIF_SINGLESTEP, no?

Afaics this was broken by

hw-breakpoints: modifying generic debug exception to use thread-specific debug registers
commit 08d68323d1f0c34452e614263b212ca556dae47f

To verify, the "patch" below fixes the stepping for me, not sure what
is the proper fix...

Oleg.
