Subject[PATCH] pstore/ram: Fix console ramoops to show the previous boot logs
commit b05c950698fe ("pstore/ram: Simplify ramoops_get_next_prz()
arguments") changed update assignment in getting next persistent
ram zone by adding a check for record type. But the check always
returns true since the record type is assigned 0. And this breaks
console ramoops by showing current console log instead of previous
log on warm reset and hard reset (actually hard reset should not
be showing any logs).

Fix this by having persistent ram zone type check instead of record
type check. Tested this on SDM845 MTP and dragonboard 410c.

Reproducing this issue is simple as below:

1. Trigger hard reset and mount pstore. Will see console-ramoops
record in the mounted location which is the current log.

2. Trigger warm reset and mount pstore. Will see the current
console-ramoops record instead of previous record.
