Subject: [PATCH v2 06/13] um: Improve panic notifiers consistency and ordering

Currently the panic notifiers from user mode linux don't follow
the convention for most of the other notifiers present in the
kernel (indentation, priority setting, numeric return).
More important, the priorities could be improved, since it's a
special case (userspace), hence we could run the notifiers earlier;
user mode linux shouldn't care much with other panic notifiers but
the ordering among the mconsole and arch notifier is important,
given that the arch one effectively triggers a core dump.

Fix that by running the mconsole notifier as the first panic
notifier, followed by the architecture one (that coredumps).

V2:
- Kept the notifier header to avoid implicit usage - thanks
Johannes for the suggestion!
