Subject: [PATCH v2 1/4] panic: Add new API in_panic_state()

For some features (such as hang_task, ledtrig-activity, ledtrig-heartbeat)
different processing logics need to be performed based on whether the
current system is in panic state:
	1: Register hook for panic_notifier_list.
	2. Assign a value to the global variable in the hook function.
	3. Determine whether the system is in panic state based on the
          global variable and perform different processing.
Duplicate code snippets exist, and the timing judgment is relatively lag.
Therefore, consider extracting the new API: bool in_panic_state(void).
