[PATCH v4 3/8] vmcore, procfs: introduce MEM_TYPE_CURRENT_KERNEL flag to distinguish objects copied in 2nd kernel

Later patch will copy ELF note segments in buffer on the 2nd
kernel. To handle memory on the 1st kernel (old memory) and memory on
the 2nd kernel in vmcore_list uniformly, introduce
MEM_TYPE_CURRENT_KERNEL flag. If this flag is set, the vmcore object
corresponds to buffer on the 2nd kernel.
