[PATCH] Kexec / Kdump: Unify elf note code
The elf note saving code is currently duplicated over several architectures. This cleanup patch simply adds code to a common file and then replaces the arch-specific code with calls to the newly added code. The only drawback with this approach is that s390 doesn't fully support kexec-on-panic which for that arch leads to introduction of unused code.
