x86: pat: Clean up req_type special case for reserve_memtype()

Commit:

  b6ff32d: x86, PAT: Consolidate code in pat_x_mtrr_type() and reserve_memtype()

consolidated code in pat_x_mtrr_type() and reserve_memtype(),
which removed the special case (req_type is -1) for the
PAT-enabled part.

We should also change comments and the PAT-disabled part.
