[PATCH 2/9] Fix copy-paste bug: entry16 does not start at entry16_debug.

The entry16 and entry16_debug functions need to compute appropriate 16-bit
segments before dropping to real mode. Each is intended to use its own
entry address as the segment base. However, both were using the entry
address of entry16_debug, causing the code-segment reload to branch to the
wrong place in the non-debug case.

This bug was only visible when running kexec with --real-mode and without
