This series contains some improvements and fixes to xmon:

1) Pan Xinhui fixed a long-term bug, in which the xmon debugger got
stuck enabled after user invoked it using sysrq, regardless of its
state set in the kernel command-line.

2) A debugfs entry was added in order to allow user to enable/disable
xmon without need a kernel reload.

3) The nobt option was dropped and some minor issues were fixed, like
a misplacement of __initdata.

@Pan Xinhui: I did a minor modification in your commit message, feel
free to improve it if you think it isn't ok.
