This patch changes reserve_memtype() to support the WT cache mode
with PAT.  When PAT is not enabled, WB and UC- are the only types
supported.

When a target range is in RAM, reserve_ram_pages_type() verifies
the requested type.  reserve_ram_pages_type() is changed to fail
WT and WP requests with -EINVAL since set_page_memtype() is
limited to handle three types, WB, WC and UC-.
