Subject[RFC 0/2] pstore/rom: new support logger for block devices
pstore_rom is similar to pstore_ram, but dump log to block devices
rather than persistent ram.

Why should we need pstore_rom?
1. Most embedded intelligent equipment have no persistent ram, which
increases costs. We perfer to cheaper solutions, like block devices.
In fast, there is already a sample for block device logger in driver
MTD (drivers/mtd/mtdoops.c).
2. Do not any equipment have battery, which means that it lost all data
on general ram if power failure. Pstore has little to do for these

On patch 1:
Core codes of pstore_rom, which works well on allwinner(sunxi) platform.
On patch 2:
A sample for pstore_rom, using general ram rather than block device.
