[PATCH 08/11] blkoops: respect for device to pick recorders

It's one of a series of patches for adaptive to MTD device.

MTD device is not block device. The sector of flash (MTD device) will be
broken if erase over limited cycles. Avoid damaging block so fast, we
can not write to a sector frequently. So, the recorders of pstore/blk
like console and ftrace recorder should not be supported.

Besides, mtd device need aligned write/erase size. To avoid
over-erasing/writing flash, we should keep a aligned cache and read old
data to cache before write/erase, which make codes more complex. So,
pmsg do not be supported now because it writes misaligned.

How about dmesg? Luckly, pstore/blk keeps several aligned chunks for
dmesg and uses one by one for wear balance.

So, MTD device for pstore should pick recorders, that is why the patch
here.
