x86/kexec: Fix a kexec_file_load() failure

Commit

b6664ba42f14 ("s390, kexec_file: drop arch_kexec_mem_walk()")

changed the behavior of kexec_locate_mem_hole(): it will try to allocate
free memory only when kbuf.mem is initialized to zero.

However, x86's kexec_file_load() implementation reuses a struct
kexec_buf allocated on the stack and its kbuf.mem member gets set by
each kexec_add_buffer() invocation.

The second kexec_add_buffer() will reuse the same kbuf but not
reinitialize kbuf.mem.

Therefore, explictily reset kbuf.mem each time in order for
kexec_locate_mem_hole() to locate a free memory region each time.

[ bp: massage commit message. ]
