mm: page_alloc: Untag page address in free_reserved_area()

free_reserved_area() memsets the pages belonging to a given memory area.
To do that retrieves the page address via page_address(). For the
that support KASAN the pointer to the page can be tagged as a result of
page_address() but the underlying memory untouched by any allocator.
This scenario causes a tag fault during the memset() operation.

Untag the address to avoid spurious faults.
