'Commit ec776ef6bbe17 ("x86/mm: Add support for the non-standard
protected e820 type")' added E820_PRAM ranges, which do not have
have struct-page.  Therefore, there is no need to update max_pfn
to cover the E820_PRAM ranges.  Revert the change made to account
E820_PRAM as RAM in e820_end_pfn() in the commit.
