[PATCH] x86/kexec: always ensure EFI systab region is mapped

This is a fix needed for: "x86/boot: Use efi_setup_data for searching
RSDP on kexec-ed kernels", that patch cause kexec to reset the system
on some machines.

The reason is the systab region is not mapped by the identity mapping
provided by kexec. Currently kexec only create identity mapping for
mem regions, wihch won't cover the systab. So second kernel will be
accessing a not mapped memory region and cause fault.
But as kexec tend to pad the map region up to PUD size, the
systab could be included in the map by accident, so it worked on
some machines, but that will be broken easily and unstable.

To fix it just treat systab specially, always map the systab region
unconditionally on EFI systems as long as there is a valid systab
address.
