Subject: [PATCH v1 08/12] netoops: Add one-shot mode

Sometimes it is possible to have a kernel crashing that continuously Oopses.
In this case, we do not want the network dumper get called over and over again,
as we may only be interested in the first Oops that a kernel emits (especially
in cases where we panic_on_oops).

In order to support this dumping policy, this commit introduces a file call
/proc/sys/kernel/net_dump_one_shot that contains a boolean as to whether or not
the netoops driver will operate in one-shot mode.

Note that 'soft' dumps do not disable the netoops driver when one-shot mode is
enabled.
