dump_stack: serialize the output from dump_stack()

Add functionality to serialize the output from dump_stack() to avoid
mangling of the output when dump_stack is called simultaneously from
multiple cpus.

[akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix comment indenting, avoid inclusion of <asm/> files - use <linux/> where possiblem fix uniprocessor build (__dump_stack undefined), remove unneeded ifdef around smp.h inclusion]
