Subject[056/102] kexec, x86: Fix incorrect jump back address if not preserving context
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com>

commit 050438ed5a05b25cdf287f5691e56a58c2606997 upstream.

In kexec jump support, jump back address passed to the kexeced
kernel via function calling ABI, that is, the function call
return address is the jump back entry.

Furthermore, jump back entry == 0 should be used to signal that
the jump back or preserve context is not enabled in the original
kernel.

But in the current implementation the stack position used for
function call return address is not cleared context
preservation is disabled. The patch fixes this bug.
