kgdb/kgdbts: support ppc64
We can't look up the address of the entry point of the function simply via that function symbol for all architectures. For PPC64 ABI, actually there is a function descriptors structure. A function descriptor is a three doubleword data structure that contains the following values: * The first doubleword contains the address of the entry point of the function. * The second doubleword contains the TOC base address for the function. * The third doubleword contains the environment pointer for languages such as Pascal and PL/1. So we should call a wapperred dereference_function_descriptor() to get the address of the entry point of the function. Note this is also safe for other architecture after refer to "include/asm-generic/sections.h" since: dereference_function_descriptor(p) always is (p) if without arched definition.
