[Patch 1/1] cciss: bug fix, prevent cciss from loading in kdump kernel

Patch 1/1

If hpsa is selected as the Smart Array driver cciss may try to load in the
kdump kernel. When this happens kdump fails and a core file cannot be created.
This patch prevents cciss from trying to load in this scenario. This effects
primarily older Smart Array controllers.
