powerpc/pseries: Fix kexec on recent firmware versions
Recent versions of firmware will fail to unmap the virtual processor area if we have a dispatch trace log registered. This causes kexec to fail. If a trace log is registered this patch unregisters it before the SLB shadow and virtual processor areas, fixing the problem. The address argument is ignored by firmware on unregister so we may as well remove it.
