x86, UV: Make kdump avoid stack dumps - fix !CONFIG_KEXEC breakage

This replaces Version 1 of this patch, which broke the build when
CONFIG_KEXEC and CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP were configured off. In that case
the storage for the 'in_crash_kexec' flag was never built.

This version defines that flag as 0 if CONFIG_KEXEC is not set.
The patch is tested with all combinations of those two options.
