Subject: [PATCH 2/4] mm: cma: Always consider a 0 base address reservation as dynamic

The fixed parameter to cma_declare_contiguous() tells the function
whether the given base address must be honoured or should be considered
as a hint only. The API considers a zero base address as meaning any
base address, which must never be considered as a fixed value.

Part of the implementation correctly checks both fixed and base != 0,
but two locations check the fixed value only. Set fixed to false when
base is 0 to fix that and simplify the code.
