kgdb: fix optional arch functions and probe_kernel_*
Fix two regressions dealing with the kgdb core. 1) kgdb_skipexception and kgdb_post_primary_code are optional functions that are only required on archs that need special exception fixups. 2) The kernel address space scope must be set on any probe_kernel_* function or archs such as ARCH=arm will not allow access to the kernel memory space. As an example, it is required to allow the full kernel address space is when you the kernel debugger to inspect a system call.
