Subject: [v1 2/5] kexec: add resource for normal kexec region

crashk_res resource is used to reserve memory for crash kernel. There is
also, however, a benefit to reserve memory for normal kernel to speed up
reboot performance. This is because during regular kexec reboot, kernel
performs relocations to the final destination of the loaded segments, and
the relocation might take a long time especially if initramfs is big.

Therefore, similarly to crashk_res, add kexeck_res that will be used to
reserve memory for normal kexec kernel.
