Subject: [PATCH v2 05/13] alpha: Clean-up the panic notifier code

The alpha panic notifier has some code issues, not following
the conventions of other notifiers. Also, it might halt the
machine but still it is set to run as early as possible, which
doesn't seem to be a good idea.

So, let's clean the code and set the notifier to run as the
latest, following the same approach other architectures are
doing - also, remove the unnecessary include of a header already
included indirectly.
