kasan, mm: untag page address in free_reserved_area

free_reserved_area() memsets the pages belonging to a given memory area.
As that memory hasn't been allocated via page_alloc, the KASAN tags that
those pages have are 0x00. As the result the memset might result in a tag

Untag the address to avoid spurious faults.
