Subject: [PATCH 0/2] Drivers: hv: fix kexec/kdump after the recent changes

'Restructure architecture specific code' series (now merged in char-misc)
introduced a regression wrt kexec/kdump. Hypercall and TSC pages setup was
moved out to the architecture specific code and the cleanup was dropped. We,
however, still need this cleanup: in kexec case the new kernel may try
using these pages as normal memory and will certainly crash. Restore the
minimal cleanup moving it to the architecture specific code.

Commit ids I mention in 'Fixes:' tags are from char-misc-next.
