panic: add an option to replay all the printk message in buffer
Currently on panic, kernel will lower the loglevel and print out pending printk msg only with console_flush_on_panic(). Add an option for users to configure the "panic_print" to replay all dmesg in buffer, some of which they may have never seen due to the loglevel setting, which will help panic debugging .
