move_pfn_range_to_zone() will set all pages to PG_reserved via
memmap_init_zone(). The only way a page could no longer be reserved
would be if a MEM_GOING_ONLINE notifier would clear PG_reserved - which
is not done (the online_page callback is used for that purpose by
e.g., Hyper-V instead). walk_system_ram_range() will never call
online_pages_range() with duplicate PFNs, so drop the PageReserved() check.

This seems to be a leftover from ancient times where the memmap was
initialized when adding memory and we wanted to check for already
onlined memory.
