pstore-ram: Allow optional mapping with pgprot_noncached
On some ARMs the memory can be mapped pgprot_noncached() and still be working for atomic operations. As pointed out by Colin Cross <ccross@android.com>, in some cases you do want to use pgprot_noncached() if the SoC supports it to see a debug printk just before a write hanging the system. On ARMs, the atomic operations on strongly ordered memory are implementation defined. So let's provide an optional kernel parameter for configuring pgprot_noncached(), and use pgprot_writecombine() by default.

+Ramoops uses a predefined memory area to store the dump. The start and size
+and type of the memory area are set using three variables:
* "mem_address" for the start
* "mem_size" for the size. The memory size will be rounded down to a
power of two.
+ * "mem_type" to specifiy if the memory type (default is pgprot_writecombine).
+
+Typically the default value of mem_type=0 should be used as that sets the pstore
+mapping to pgprot_writecombine. Setting mem_type=1 attempts to use
+pgprot_noncached, which only works on some platforms. This is because pstore
+depends on atomic operations. At least on ARM, pgprot_noncached causes the
+memory to be mapped strongly ordered, and atomic operations on strongly ordered
+memory are implementation defined, and won't work on many ARMs such as omaps.
The memory area is divided into "record_size" chunks (also rounded down to
power of two) and each oops/panic writes a "record_size" chunk of
