[PATCH v14 1/6] crash: forward memory_notify arg to arch crash hotplug handler

In the event of memory hotplug or online/offline events, the crash
memory hotplug notifier `crash_memhp_notifier()` receives a
`memory_notify` object but doesn't forward that object to the
generic and architecture-specific crash hotplug handler.

The `memory_notify` object contains the starting PFN (Page Frame Number)
and the number of pages in the hot-removed memory. This information is
necessary for architectures like PowerPC to update/recreate the kdump
image, specifically `elfcorehdr`.

So update the function signature of `crash_handle_hotplug_event()` and
`arch_crash_handle_hotplug_event()` to accept the `memory_notify` object
as an argument from crash memory hotplug notifier.

Since no such object is available in the case of CPU hotplug event, the
crash CPU hotplug notifier `crash_cpuhp_online()` passes NULL to the
crash hotplug handler.
