linux-raspberrypi.inc: Make kgdboc kernel param optional
The kernel debugger over console (kgdboc) parameter is being added unconditionally to the kernel command line but this means that the kernel will stop and wait for gdb to attach in case of a exception or when sending a sysrq-g key. This behaviour may not be what most users wants that are not remotely debugging the kernel over serial console so make it optional by adding a ENABLE_KGDB config option.
