SubjectRe: [patch 2/3] Add flags parameter to reserve_bootmem_generic()

That may make sense here, but that's unrelated to my change.

Just because the error *can* be caught by checking the return value
doesn't mean that it *must* be caught always. It was silently ignored
before in the efi_reserve_bootmem() function before, and so is it now.
No behaviour change.
