Looks OK to me now. A couple nits below.

We don't step over threads, but rather threads step over breakpoints.
(Personally. I don't see the need for a _p / predicate suffix
when the function is clearly a predicate, due to use of the
"is". thread_being_stepped_over_p / thread_is_being_stepped_over).

"breakpoint's owner" is kind of possible confusing
with "bp location owner", which is itself a breakpoint.
I'd find it clearer to copy&edit it to say:
/* Don't insert a breakpoint if we're trying to step past its
location, except if the breakpoint is a single-step breakpoint,
and the breakpoint's thread is the thread that is stepping past
a breakpoint. */

return (step_over_info.thread != -1
&& thread == step_over_info.thread);
be a bit more to the point? Using the aspace field makes me wonder whether
we're caring for a case where step_over_info.thread is set to some
thread, but aspace is NULL.
