[Cbe-oss-dev] [PATCH] Ignore memory listed in PS3 device tree

The old 2.6.16 kernel handled memory statically and it was shown in the
device tree. The current kernel deals with the hypervisor and hotplugs
the memory, so we should just ignore anything that's reported in the
device-tree. This enables the current kernel to be booted from 2.6.16
without evil hacks in head_64.S to override the device-tree.
