Subject[PATCH] x86/kexec: fix a kexec_file_load failure
The code cleanup mentioned in Fixes tag changed the behavior of
kexec_locate_mem_hole. The kexec_locate_mem_hole will try to
allocate free memory only when kbuf.mem is initialized as zero.

But in x86 kexec_file_load implementation there are a few places
the kbuf.mem is reused like below:
/* kbuf initialized, kbuf.mem = 0 */
...
kexec_add_buffer()
...
kexec_add_buffer()

The second kexec_add_buffer will reuse previous kbuf but not
reinitialize the kbuf.mem.

Thus kexec_file_load failed because the sanity check failed.

So explictily reset mem = 0 to fix the issue.

Fixes: b6664ba42f14 ("s390, kexec_file: drop arch_kexec_mem_walk()")
