devcoredump: provide a one-way disable function
Since device/firmware coredumps can contain private data, it can be desirable to turn them off unconditionally to be certain that no such data will be collected by the system. To achieve this, provide a "disabled" sysfs class attribute that can only be changed from 0 to 1 and not back. Upon disabling, discard existing coredumps and stop storing new ones.
