Subject[PATCH 19/20] x86_64: Extend bzImage protocol for relocatable kernel


o Extend the bzImage protocol (same as i386) to allow bzImage loaders to
load the protected mode kernel at non-1MB address. Now protected mode
component is relocatable and can be loaded at non-1MB addresses.

o As of today kdump uses it to run a second kernel from a reserved memory
area.
