The attached patch adds a couple of extra hooks by which kgdb or an equivalent
gdbstub can catch bad_page() and panic() invocations.
Tom is valiantly flogging his way through a generic KGDB implementation. I
think it would be better to push ahead with that and to not put into
generic code hooks which are specific to one arch's kgdb implementation.
Also, panic has a notify option that kgdb should use just like everybody else.
