[PATCH 1/3 v11] x86/e820, resource: add a new I/O resource descriptor 'IORES_DESC_RESERVED'

When doing kexec_file_load(), the first kernel needs to pass the e820
reserved ranges to the second kernel, because some devices may use it
in kdump kernel, such as PCI devices.

But, the kernel can not exactly match the e820 reserved ranges when
walking through the iomem resources via the 'IORES_DESC_NONE', because
there are several types of e820 that are described as the 'IORES_DESC_NONE'
type. Please refer to the e820_type_to_iores_desc().

Therefore, add a new I/O resource descriptor 'IORES_DESC_RESERVED' for
the iomem resources search interfaces. It is helpful to exactly match
the reserved resource ranges when walking through iomem resources.
