After entering kgdb mode, the first 'stepi' can succeed, but the following
'stepi' never executes the next instruction.

This is because a software step cannot get enabled as the software step
bit(SS) in SPSR, which is cleared by the first single stepping, will not
be set again for the following 's' commands.
Please note that this bit, as well as the software step control bit(SS)
in MDSCR, must be set before resuming the execution.
kernel_active_single_step() called by kgdb_arch_handle_exception() checks
only for the bit in MDSCR, and so kgdb_enable_single_step() will never be
called.

This patch removes kgdb_disable_single_step() from 'c' command handling
and enables/disables a single step explicitly at every entry and exit
of 's' command handling.
