[PATCH 1/3] panic: Disable crash_kexec_post_notifiers if kdump is not available

You can call panic notifiers and kmsg dumpers before kdump by
specifying "crash_kexec_post_notifiers" as a boot parameter.
However, it doesn't make sense if kdump is not available.  In that
case, disable "crash_kexec_post_notifiers" boot parameter so that
you can't change the value of the parameter.
