MIPS: DEC: Restore bootmem reservation for firmware working memory area

This memory does need to be reserved on DEC platforms however as it is used by REX firmware as working area, as per the TURBOchannel firmware specification[1]: Table 2-2 REX Memory Regions ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Starting Ending Region Address Address Use ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 0 0xa0000000 0xa000ffff Restart block, exception vectors, REX stack and bss 1 0xa0010000 0xa0017fff Keyboard or tty drivers 2 0xa0018000 0xa001f3ff 1) CRT driver 3 0xa0020000 0xa002ffff boot, cnfg, init and t objects 4 0xa0020000 0xa002ffff 64KB scratch space ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) Note that the last 3 Kbytes of region 2 are reserved for backward compatibility with previous system software. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- (this table uses KSEG2 unmapped virtual addresses, which in the MIPS architecture are offset from physical addresses by a fixed value of 0xa0000000 and therefore the regions referred do correspond to the beginning of the physical address space) and we call into the firmware on several occasions throughout the bootstrap process. It is believed that pre-REX firmware used with non-TURBOchannel DEC platforms has the same requirements, as hinted by note #1 cited. Recreate the discarded reservation then, in DEC platform code, removing the crash.
