[IA64] backport Kexec/Kdump: honour non-zero crashkernel offset

From: Horms <horms@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
>From Linux upstream, commit ad1c3ba7e54fc38b119c1a7d5c98f9ffb8227fdb

There seems to be a value in both allowing the kernel to determine
the base offset of the crashkernel automatically and allowing
users's to sepcify it.

The old behaviour on ia64, which is still the current behaviour on
most architectures is for the user to always specify the address.
Recently ia64 was changed so that it is always automatically determined.

With this patch the kernel automatically determines the offset if
the supplied value is 0, otherwise it uses the value provided.

This should probably be backed by a documentation change.
