Add skip_checksum member to struct kexec_buf to specify whether the
corresponding segment should be part of the checksum calculation.

The next patch will add a way to update segments after a kimage is loaded.
Segments that will be updated in this way should not be checksummed,
otherwise they will cause the purgatory checksum verification to fail
when the machine is rebooted.

As a bonus, we don't need to special-case the purgatory segment anymore
to avoid checksumming it.

Places using struct kexec_buf get false as the default value for
skip_checksum since they all use designated initializers.  Therefore,
there is no behavior change with this patch and all segments except the
purgatory are checksummed.

What is the world.  This fundamentally makes kexec unsafe to use.  If
any updates need to be made they should be made before they are part of
the entire image checksum.

No way should this be merged anywhere ever.
