Subject: [PATCH V23/5] kexec: Add bit definitions for kimage entry flags

Define new kexec preprocessor macros IND_*_BIT that define the bit position of
the kimage entry flags.  Change the existing IND_* flag macros to be defined as
bit shifts of the corresponding IND_*_BIT macros.  Also wrap all C language code
in kexec.h with #if !defined(__ASSEMBLY__) so assembly files can include kexec.h
to get the IND_* and IND_*_BIT macros.

Some CPU instruction sets have tests for bit position which are convenient in
implementing routines that operate on the kimage entry list.  The addition of
these bit position macros in a common location will avoid duplicate definitions
and the chance that changes to the IND_* flags will not be propagated to
assembly files.
