pstore-ram: Allow optional mapping with pgprot_noncached



On some ARMs the memory can be mapped pgprot_noncached() and still
be working for atomic operations. As pointed out by Colin Cross
<ccross@android.com>, in some cases you do want to use
pgprot_noncached() if the SoC supports it to see a debug printk
just before a write hanging the system.

On ARMs, the atomic operations on strongly ordered memory are
implementation defined. So let's provide an optional kernel parameter
for configuring pgprot_noncached(), and use pgprot_writecombine() by
default.

1. Ramoops concepts
Ramoops uses a predefined memory area to store the dump. The start and size of
the memory area are set using two variables:
Ramoops uses a predefined memory area to store the dump. The start and size
and type of the memory area are set using three variables:
* "mem_address" for the start
* "mem_size" for the size. The memory size will be rounded down to a
power of two.
* "mem_type" to specifiy if the memory type (default is pgprot_writecombine).
Typically the default value of mem_type=0 should be used as that sets the pstore
mapping to pgprot_writecombine. Setting mem_type=1 attempts to use
pgprot_noncached, which only works on some platforms. This is because pstore
depends on atomic operations. At least on ARM, pgprot_noncached causes the
memory to be mapped strongly ordered, and atomic operations on strongly ordered
memory are implementation defined, and won't work on many ARMs such as omaps.
The memory area is divided into "record_size" chunks (also rounded down to
power of two) and each oops/panic writes a "record_size" chunk of
