kdump: write correct address of mem_section into vmcoreinfo
Depending on configuration mem_section can now be an array or a pointer to an array allocated dynamically. In most cases, we can continue to refer to it as 'mem_section' regardless of what it is. But there's one exception: '&mem_section' means "address of the array" if mem_section is an array, but if mem_section is a pointer, it would mean "address of the pointer". We've stepped onto this in kdump code. VMCOREINFO_SYMBOL(mem_section) writes down address of pointer into vmcoreinfo, not array as we wanted. Let's introduce VMCOREINFO_SYMBOL_ARRAY() that would handle the situation correctly for both cases.
