If we detect that we recursively entered the debugger we should hack
our I/O ops to NULL so that the panic() in the next line won't
actually cause another recursion into the debugger.  The first line of
kgdb_panic() will check this and return.

Changes in v3:
- ("kgdb: Prevent infinite recursive entries to the debugger") new for v3.

Changes in v2: None
