[PATCH] always print note when trimming EFI memory map

I think it would be a good idea to always print a note when trimming
the EFI memory map, even if it's not "available" memory.

I just debugged a problem where we trimmed out some memory that
contained ACPI tables.  When we went to look at a table later,
we used the wrong attribute because we couldn't find its address
in the EFI memory map.  This caused an MCA (uncached access to
memory).  Straightforward to debug, but the note would have
made it quicker.

This patch is against 2.5.
