[RFC v2 4/5] Only set page reserved in the memblock region

From: Nathan Zimmer
Date: Fri Aug 02 2013 - 13:45:52 EST

Currently we when we initialze each page struct is set as reserved upon
initialization. This changes to starting with the reserved bit clear and
then only setting the bit in the reserved region.

I could restruture a bit to eliminate the perform hit. But I wanted to make
sure I am on track first.
