To be clear, do you mean, when single stepping the last jump pad instruction,
the jump that goes back to the regular code? When putting a breakpoint on the
next pc of that instruction, it means putting a breakpoint in the regular code.
However, when doing a single step in gdbserver, aren't all other threads stopped?
