BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1735159

Unrecovered MCE and HMI errors are sent through a special restart OPAL
call to log the platform error. The downside is that they don't go
through normal Linux crash paths, so they don't give much information
to the Linux console.

Change this by providing a special crash function which does some of
the console flushing from the panic() path before calling firmware to
reboot.

The downside of this is a little more code to execute before reaching
the firmware reboot. However in practice, it's critical to get the
Linux console messages output in order to debug a problem. So this is
a desirable tradeoff.

Note on the implementation: It is difficult to plumb a custom reboot
handler into the panic path, because panic does a little bit too much
work. For example, it will try to delay with the timebase, but that
may be corrupted in some cases resulting in a hang without reaching
the platform reboot. Another problem is that panic can invoke the
crash dump code which is not what we want in the case of a hardware
platform error. Long-term the best solution will be to rework the
panic path so it can be suitable for this kind of panic, but for now
we just duplicate a bit of the code.
