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 invoked by sysrq, regardless the state it was
set in the kernel command-line.

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

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

@mpe: The series was rebased against powerpc-next.
