PR threads/2015: Fix adjust_pc_after_break for thread debugging

adjust_pc_after_break is doing the wrong thing during thread debugging
when the current thread is different from the thread when the debuggee was
stopped last.  The problem is that it calls currently_stepping, which
accesses global variables that are part of the thread context.  But the
context switch will only happen much later on.  The proposed fix will skip
the call when the current infrun context does not match the thread to be
examined.  This has been tested on x86_64-suse-linux and fixes 32
testcases without any regressions.
