Non-stop mode is a GDB operation mode where hitting a breakpoint in one thread
suspends that thread without suspending any other threads. GDB manual describes
it. It is relatively recent addition, and it requires some per-architecture work,
so it does not work everywhere. It does work on x86, of course.

To answer the original question -- KDevelop does not have an easy way to enable
non-stop mode, and I am not sure it will work even if non-stop mode is enabled
manually. In particular, I suspect that KDevelop internal structures that track
running/stopped states of threads will break down in non-stop mode.
