[S390] kernel: show last breaking-event-address on oops

Newer s390 models have a breaking-event-address-recording register.
Each time an instruction causes a break in the sequential instruction
execution, the address is saved in that hardware register. On a program
interrupt the address is copied to the lowcore address 272-279, which
makes it software accessible.

This patch changes the program check handler and the stack overflow
checker to copy the value into the pt_regs argument.
The oops output is enhanced to show the last known breaking address.
It might give additional information if the stack trace is corrupted.

The feature is only available on 64 bit.

The new oops output looks like:
