[v2 3/5] arm64: kdump: do not go into EL2 before starting a crash dump kernel

Unlike normal kexec case, we don't have a chance to reset EL2 context in
a generic way because bad exceptions may directly invoke crash_kexec().
(See die().)
Kvm is not useful on crash dump kernel anyway, and so we let it
un-initialized across rebooting.
