Many embedded boards have a disconnected TTL level serial which can
generate some garbage that can lead to spurious false sysrq detects.

Currently, sysrq can be either completely disabled for serial console
or always disabled (with CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ_SERIAL), since
commit 732dbf3a6104 ("serial: do not accept sysrq characters via serial port")

At Arista, we have such boards that can generate BREAK and random
garbage. While disabling sysrq for serial console would solve
the problem with spurious false sysrq triggers, it's also desirable
to have a way to enable sysrq back.

As a measure of balance between on and off options, add
MAGIC_SYSRQ_SERIAL_SEQUENCE which is a string sequence that can enable
sysrq if it follows BREAK on a serial line. The longer the string - the
less likely it may be in the garbage.

Having the way to enable sysrq was beneficial to debug lockups with
a manual investigation in field and on the other side preventing false
sysrq detections.
