Coresight framework creates /dev nodes for ETB/ETF devices, these nodes
cannot read out data if without enable the coresight path. Finally we
lose chance to dump RAM if there have some old data kept in it.

So this patch is to add support to dump RAM when device is disabled,
with this small change we can easily read out ETB RAM data before there
have new data has been sent to it. These dump data may come from the
previous system running, so it will be very helpful to analyze some hang
issue before system dead.
