[S390] user per registers vs. ptrace single stepping

git commit 5e9a2692

 "[S390] ptrace cleanup" introduced a regression
for the case when both a user PER set (e.g. a storage alteration trace) and
PTRACE_SINGLESTEP are active. The new code will overrule the user PER set
with a instruction-fetch PER set over the whole address space for ptrace
single stepping. The inferior process will be stopped after each instruction
with an instruction fetch event. Any other events that may have occurred
concurrently are not reported (e.g. storage alteration event) because the
control bits for them are not set. The solution is to merge the PER control
bits of the user PER set with the PER_EVENT_IFETCH control bit for
