memblock: free allocated memblock_reserved_regions later
memblock_free_reserved_regions() calls memblock_free(), but
memblock_free() would double reserved.regions too, so we could free the
old range for reserved.regions.
Also tj said there is another bug which could be related to this.
| I don't think we're saving any noticeable
| amount by doing this "free - give it to page allocator - reserve
| again" dancing. We should just allocate regions aligned to page
| boundaries and free them later when memblock is no longer in use.
in that case, when DEBUG_PAGEALLOC, will get panic:
memblock_free: [0x0000102febc080-0x0000102febf080] memblock_free_reserved_regions+0x37/0x39

See the discussion at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/6/13/469
So try to allocate with PAGE_SIZE alignment and free it later.
