[PATCH] Add kernstart_addr to list of allowed symbols in prom_init

Since commit "85xx: Add support for relocatable kernel (and
booting at non-zero)" (37dd2badcfcec35f5e21a0926968d77a404f03c3),
PHYSICAL_START is #defined as kernstart_addr if RELOCATABLE
and FLATMEM is enabled.

PHYSICAL_START is used in prom_init.c and so kernstart_addr
needs to be added to the list of allowed symbols that
prom_init.c can access.

Signed-off-by: Michael Ellerman <michael at ellerman.id.au>

Not sure if anyone is building this config in practice, but it
is broken in 26 without this patch.
