x86/e820: Don't merge consecutive E820_PRAM ranges

Commit:

917db484dc6a ("x86/boot: Fix kdump, cleanup aborted E820_PRAM max_pfn manipulation")

... fixed up the broken manipulations of max_pfn in the presence of
E820_PRAM ranges.

However, it also broke the sanitize_e820_map() support for not merging
E820_PRAM ranges.

Re-introduce the enabling to keep resource boundaries between
consecutive defined ranges. Otherwise, for example, an environment that
boots with memmap=2G!8G,2G!10G will end up with a single 4G /dev/pmem0
device instead of a /dev/pmem0 and /dev/pmem1 device 2G in size.
