Subject: [PATCH v2] misc: pvpanic: introduce device capability

According to pvpanic spec:
https://git.qemu.org/?p=qemu.git;a=blob_plain;f=docs/specs/pvpanic.txt

The guest should determine pvpanic capability by RDPT, so initialize
capability during device probing. There is no need to register panic
notifier callback function if no events supported.

Before sending event to host side, check capability firstly.
Suggested by Paolo, export capability of pvpanic device by read-only
module parameter.
