Subject[RFC PATCH 17/33] Support loading an initrd when running on Xen
Due to the initial physical memory layout when booting on Xen, the initrd
image ends up below min_low_pfn (as registered with the bootstrap memory
allocator). Add Xen subarch support to enable initrd_below_start_ok flag,
and disable initrd_reserve_bootmem.
