init: make break after behaviour really break after #1773

Just a small change to the init "break after" procedure.

Whenever debugging break=$step is configured, the init process will drop into a debug shell after $step, eg. after load_splash.

However, once you exit from $step, the boot procedure will continue to completion even if you wanted to debug a subsequent step.

This change now means that once you have reached $step and dropped into the debug shell, all subsequent steps will also break and drop into the debug shell. This gives more control over the init boot process once $step is reached.

Note that if the debug shell is entered because of an error, the existing boot-to-completion behaviour is unchanged.

In addition, the current boot step has been added to the debug shell message so that users will know where they are in the boot process... handy if using break=all.

I don't feel like this is needed over using break=all however there is no harm in adding it
