Subject: [PATCH v3] x86/realmode: don't leak kernel addresses

Since commit ad67b74d2469d9b8 ("printk: hash addresses printed with %p"),
at boot "____ptrval____" is printed instead of the trampoline addresses:

    Base memory trampoline at [(____ptrval____)] 99000 size 24576

Remove the print as we don't want to leak kernel addresses.

Fixes: ad67b74d2469d9b8 ("printk: hash addresses printed with %p")
