Subject: [PATCH] x86: make 64 bit to use relocate_initrd too


found one system memory (according e820) is not covered by mtrr.
mtrr_trim_memory converts portion memory to reserved.
but bootloader put the initrd in that range already.

need to have 64bit to use relocate_initrd too.

[ Impact: fix using initrd when mtrr_trim_memory happen ]
