x86/setup: Fix static memory detection
When booting x86 images in qemu, the following warning is seen randomly if DEBUG_LOCKDEP is enabled. WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 1 at kernel/locking/lockdep.c:1119 lockdep_register_key+0xc0/0x100 static_obj() returns true if an address is between _stext and _end. On x86, this includes the brk memory space. Problem is that this memory block is not static on x86; its unused portions are released after init and can be allocated. This results in the observed warning if a lockdep object is allocated from this memory. Solve the problem by implementing arch_is_kernel_initmem_freed() for x86 and have it return true if an address is within the released memory range. The same problem was solved for s390 with commit 7a5da02de8d6e ("locking/lockdep: check for freed initmem in static_obj()"), which introduced arch_is_kernel_initmem_freed().
