cma: don't quit at first error when activating reserved areas
The routine cma_init_reserved_areas is designed to activate all reserved cma areas. It quits when it first encounters an error. This can leave some areas in a state where they are reserved but not activated. There is no feedback to code which performed the reservation. Attempting to allocate memory from areas in such a state will result in a BUG. Modify cma_init_reserved_areas to always attempt to activate all areas. The called routine, cma_activate_area is responsible for leaving the area in a valid state. No one is making active use of returned error codes, so change the routine to void. How to reproduce: This example uses kernelcore, hugetlb and cma as an easy way to reproduce. However, this is a more general cma issue.
