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.

15 Misc. notes for RISCom/8 serial driver, in no particular order :)
17 1) This driver can support up to 4 boards at time.
18 Use string "riscom8=0xXXX,0xXXX,0xXXX,0xXXX" at LILO prompt, for
19 setting I/O base addresses for boards. If you compile driver
20 as module use modprobe options "iobase=0xXXX iobase1=0xXXX iobase2=..."
22 2) The driver partially supports famous 'setserial' program, you can use almost
23 any of its options, excluding port & irq settings.
25 3) There are some misc. defines at the beginning of riscom8.c, please read the
26 comments and try to change some of them in case of problems.
28 4) I consider the current state of the driver as BETA.
30 5) SDL Communications WWW page is http://www.sdlcomm.com.
32 6) You can use the MAKEDEV program to create RISCom/8 /dev/ttyL* entries.
34 7) Minor numbers for first board are 0-7, for second 8-15, etc.
