Subject[ 33/66] ptrace/x86: Introduce set_task_blockstep() helper
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>

commit 848e8f5f0ad3169560c516fff6471be65f76e69f upstream.

No functional changes, preparation for the next fix and for uprobes
single-step fixes.

Move the code playing with TIF_BLOCKSTEP/DEBUGCTLMSR_BTF into the
new helper, set_task_blockstep().
