panic: Taint kernel if tests are run

Most in-kernel tests (such as KUnit tests) are not supposed to run on
production systems: they may do deliberately illegal things to trigger
errors, and have security implications (for example, KUnit assertions
will often deliberately leak kernel addresses).

Add a new taint type, TAINT_TEST to signal that a test has been run.
This will be printed as 'N' (originally for kuNit, as every other
sensible letter was taken.)

This should discourage people from running these tests on production
systems, and to make it easier to tell if tests have been run
accidentally (by loading the wrong configuration, etc.)

kernel/panic: move panic sysctls to its own file

kernel/sysctl.c is a kitchen sink where everyone leaves their dirty
dishes, this makes it very difficult to maintain.

To help with this maintenance let's start by moving sysctls to places
where they actually belong. The proc sysctl maintainers do not want to
know what sysctl knobs you wish to add for your own piece of code, we
just care about the core logic.

All filesystem syctls now get reviewed by fs folks. This commit
follows the commit of fs, move the oops_all_cpu_backtrace sysctl to
its own file, kernel/panic.c.

kernel.h: split out panic and oops helpers

kernel.h is being used as a dump for all kinds of stuff for a long time.
Here is the attempt to start cleaning it up by splitting out panic and
oops helpers.

There are several purposes of doing this:
- dropping dependency in bug.h
- dropping a loop by moving out panic_notifier.h
- unload kernel.h from something which has its own domain

At the same time convert users tree-wide to use new headers, although for
the time being include new header back to kernel.h to avoid twisted
indirected includes for existing users.
