Subject: [PATCH] ptrace/x86: Introduce set_task_blockstep() helper

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().
