kexec: dont initialise regions in reserve_memory()

There is no need to initialise efi_memmap_res and boot_param_res in
reserve_memory() for the initial xen domain as it is done in
machine_kexec_setup_resources() using values from the kexec hypercall.

1 Software cursor for VGA by Pavel Machek <pavel@atrey.karlin.mff.cuni.cz>
2 ======================= and Martin Mares <mj@atrey.karlin.mff.cuni.cz>
4 Linux now has some ability to manipulate cursor appearance. Normally, you
5 can set the size of hardware cursor (and also work around some ugly bugs in
6 those miserable Trident cards--see #define TRIDENT_GLITCH in drivers/video/
7 vgacon.c). You can now play a few new tricks: you can make your cursor look
8 like a non-blinking red block, make it inverse background of the character it's
9 over or to highlight that character and still choose whether the original
10 hardware cursor should remain visible or not. There may be other things I have
11 never thought of.
13 The cursor appearance is controlled by a "<ESC>[?1;2;3c" escape sequence
14 where 1, 2 and 3 are parameters described below. If you omit any of them,
15 they will default to zeroes.
17 Parameter 1 specifies cursor size (0=default, 1=invisible, 2=underline, ...,
18 8=full block) + 16 if you want the software cursor to be applied + 32 if you
19 want to always change the background color + 64 if you dislike having the
20 background the same as the foreground. Highlights are ignored for the last two
21 flags.
23 The second parameter selects character attribute bits you want to change
24 (by simply XORing them with the value of this parameter). On standard VGA,
25 the high four bits specify background and the low four the foreground. In both
26 groups, low three bits set color (as in normal color codes used by the console)
27 and the most significant one turns on highlight (or sometimes blinking--it
28 depends on the configuration of your VGA).
30 The third parameter consists of character attribute bits you want to set.
31 Bit setting takes place before bit toggling, so you can simply clear a bit by
32 including it in both the set mask and the toggle mask.
34 Examples:
35 =========
37 To get normal blinking underline, use: echo -e '\033[?2c'
38 To get blinking block, use: echo -e '\033[?6c'
39 To get red non-blinking block, use: echo -e '\033[?17;0;64c'
