xen/arm: mm: Allow dump_hyp_walk() to work on the current root table

dump_hyp_walk() is used to print the tables walk in case of the data or
instruction abort.

Those abort are not limited to the runtime and could happen at early
boot. However, the current implementation of dump_hyp_walk() check
that the TTBR matches the runtime page tables.

Therefore, early abort will result to a secondary abort and not
print the table walks.

Given that the function is called in the abort path, there is no
reason for us to keep the BUG_ON() in any form. So drop it.
