commit 9478f1927e6ef9ef5e1ad761af1c98aa8e40b7f5 upstream.

Our arm64_skip_faulting_instruction() helper advances the userspace
singlestep state machine, but this is also called by the kernel BRK
handler, as used for WARN*().

Thus, if we happen to hit a WARN*() while the user singlestep state
machine is in the active-no-pending state, we'll advance to the
active-pending state without having executed a user instruction, and
will take a step exception earlier than expected when we return to

Let's fix this by only advancing the state machine when skipping a user
