x86/hyperv: Fix kernel panic when kexec on HyperV

After commit 68bb7bfb7985 ("X86/Hyper-V: Enable IPI enlightenments"),
kexec fails with a kernel panic:

kexec_core: Starting new kernel
BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000000
Hardware name: Microsoft Corporation Virtual Machine/Virtual Machine, BIOS Hyper-V UEFI Release v3.0 03/02/2018
RIP: 0010:0xffffc9000001d000

Call Trace:
 ? __send_ipi_mask+0x1c6/0x2d0
 ? hv_send_ipi_mask_allbutself+0x6d/0xb0
 ? mp_save_irq+0x70/0x70
 ? __ioapic_read_entry+0x32/0x50
 ? ioapic_read_entry+0x39/0x50
 ? clear_IO_APIC_pin+0xb8/0x110
 ? native_stop_other_cpus+0x6e/0x170
 ? native_machine_shutdown+0x22/0x40
 ? kernel_kexec+0x136/0x156

That happens if hypercall based IPIs are used because the hypercall page is
reset very early upon kexec reboot, but kexec sends IPIs to stop CPUs,
which invokes the hypercall and dereferences the unusable page.

To fix his, reset hv_hypercall_pg to NULL before the page is reset to avoid
any misuse, IPI sending will fall back to the non hypercall based
method. This only happens on kexec / kdump so just setting the pointer to
NULL is good enough.
