[PATCH] kdump: x86_64: add elfcorehdr command line option



- elfcorehdr= specifies the location of elf core header stored by the
  crashed kernel.  This command line option will be passed by the kexec-tools
  to capture kernel.

Changes in this version :

- Added more comments in kernel-parameters.txt and in code.
