x86/setup: Call early_reserve_memory() earlier
Commit in Fixes introduced early_reserve_memory() to do all needed initial memblock_reserve() calls in one function. Unfortunately, the call of early_reserve_memory() is done too late for Xen dom0, as in some cases a Xen hook called by e820__memory_setup() will need those memory reservations to have happened already. Move the call of early_reserve_memory() before the call of e820__memory_setup() in order to avoid such problems.
