Register all the pstore frontend with minidump, so that they can

Helper functions is written in separate file and built along with
the minidump driver, since it is client of minidump and also call
it at appropriate place from minidump probe so that they always
get registered.

While at it also rename the out minidump module object name during
build as qcom_apss_minidump which basically depicts as Qualcomm
Application processor subsystem minidump.

Can't we make QC minidump available without PSTORE? PSTORE is another
cllient for minidump, so other clients can still use minidump right?
Where is this hard dependency coming from?

Thanks for asking this question, this was intentionally put here to
continue the discussion forward about minidump existence in kernel tree
and how community want to see it in kernel tree.

Actually, there is no hard dependency of minidump on pstore and as i have said in cover-letter about minidump is going to collect what ramoops is offering now or going to offer in future as a default

So, main minidump driver does not depends on pstore since, i have integrated even the minidump client with this

I may guard this entire qcom_ramoops_minidump_{register|unregister}()
function under CONFIG_PSTORE_RAM, if everyone agree ?
