mtd: mtdoops: refactor as a kmsg_dumper

The last messages which happens before a crash might contain interesting
information about the crash. This patch reworks mtdoops using the
kmsg_dumper support instead of a console, which simplifies the code and
also includes the messages before the oops started.

On oops callbacks, the MTD device write is scheduled in a work queue (to
be able to use the regular mtd->write call), while panics call
mtd->panic_write directly. Thus, if panic_on_oops is set, the oops will
be written out during the panic.

A parameter to specify which mtd device to use (number or name), as well
as a flag, writable at runtime, to toggle wheter to dump oopses or only
panics (since oopses can often be handled by regular syslog).

The patch was massaged and amended by Artem.
