Subject: [PATCH] uprobes/powerpc: Add dependency on single step emulation

commit 5e249d4528528c9a77da051a89ec7f99d31b83eb upstream.

Uprobes uses emulate_step in sstep.c, but we haven't explicitly specified
the dependency. On pseries HAVE_HW_BREAKPOINT protects us, but 44x has no
such luxury.

Consolidate other users that depend on sstep and create a new config option.
