kexec: add dmesg log symbols to /proc/vmcoreinfo lists



It would be nice to be able to extract the dmesg log from a vmcore file
without needing to keep the debug symbols for the running kernel handy all
the time.  We have a facility to do this in /proc/vmcore.  This patch adds
the log_buf and log_end symbols to the vmcoreinfo area so that tools (like
makedumpfile) can easily extract the dmesg logs from a vmcore image.
