SmartOS OS-7625

On a Dell R510 in EFIBoot, we see:

Loading /os/20190122T132623Z/platform/i86pc/kernel/amd64/unix...

because of

ok memmap
                   Type     Physical      Virtual   #Pages Attr
       BootServicesData 000000010000 000000000000 00000090 UC WC WT WB

Instead, we'll just allocate the relocator pages from loader's heap, as this seems a lot less
likely to intersect the kernel load region.
