[v1 5/5] arm64, kexec: reserve kexeckernel region

kexeckernel= is used to reserve memory for normal kexec kernel for
faster reboot.

Rename reserve_crashkernel() to reserve_crash_or_kexec_kernel(), and
generalize it by adding an argument that specifies what is reserved:
"crashkernel=" for crash kernel region
"kexeckernel=" for normal kexec region
