[PATCH] xen/pvh: Do not fill kernel's e820 map in init_pvh_bootparams()




e820 map is updated with information from the zeropage (i.e.
pvh_bootparams) by default_machine_specific_memory_setup().
With the way things are done now, we end up with a duplicated
e820 map.

This patch is against for-linus-4.12 branch. Since this is not
a critical issue I don't want to submit it to 4.11 at rc8 time
(plus it will require rebasing for-linus-4.12).
