GameDB: Fahrenheit asylum crashing fixes. (#3109)

This commit add a patch to solve a crash in the game "Fahrenheit".

Found with the help of the dev-9 plugin and the PS4 emu.

This is a game bug trigger by a timing issue. The game have an internal crash reporting system
which rely on a debug server connected to the console.

When the game do an error, it expects the debug server to be connected to send the crash dump.

But that never happen on PCSX2 as the debug server is not present.

Thus, the game will enter in an infinite loop at the asylum level.

This only happen when certain conditions are meet in the game.

This patch makes the game to exit the loop by cancelling the debug reporting.

On top of that the game have no frame pacing system in place which causes a massive slowdown in loading screens.

Thankfully, this can be patched out.

Note: NTSC version is fine and doesn't require the patch.
