[PATCH] Plug kdump shutdown race window

lapic_shutdown() re-enables interrupts which is un-desirable for panic
case, so use local_irq_save() and local_irq_restore() to keep the irqs
disabled for kexec on panic case, and close a possible race window while
kdump shutdown as shown in this stack trace
