s/async/non-stop mode/g.  All-stop + async doesn't need
it either.  This feature was added for non-stop, as a way to
avoid lifting breakpoints from the inferior when stepping over
a breakpoint, otherwise, other running threads could miss them.

No other reason to have it always on other than for more
exposure, I guess.  Time to pull the plug?

I'd still like to have a way to enable displaced-stepping
in all-stop mode, as it's very useful for testing.
