x86/boot: Simplify calculation of output address
Condense the calculation of decompressed kernel start a little. Committer notes: before: ebp = ebx - (init_size - _end) after: eax = (ebx + _end) - init_size where in both ebx contains the temporary address the kernel is moved to for in-place decompression. The before and after difference in register state is %eax and %ebp but that is immaterial because the compressed image is not built with -mregparm, i.e., all arguments of the following extract_kernel() call are passed on the stack.
