As the number of FADump sysfs files increases it is hard to manage all of
them inside /sys/kernel directory. It's better to have all the FADump
related sysfs files in a dedicated directory /sys/kernel/fadump. But in
order to maintain the backward compatibility the /sys/kernel/fadump_*
sysfs files are replicated inside /sys/kernel/fadump/ and eventually get
removed in future.

Consolidate ABI documentation for all the FADump sysfs file in a single
file Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-kernel-fadump.
