Subject: [PATCH v3 2/4] powerpc/fadump: reorganize /sys/kernel/fadump_* sysfs files

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.

As the FADump sysfs files are now part of dedicated directory there is no
need to prefix their name with fadump_, hence sysfs file names are also
updated. For example fadump_enabled sysfs file is now referred as enabled.

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