[SPARC64]: Document and fix calculation of pages_avail.
It should be set to the total number of pages that the system will really have available after things like initmem, the bootmem map, and initrd are freed up. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

+ * So this number should really be set to what the page allocator

+ * 2) It should not include the kernel image, except for the
+ * __init sections which we will also release.
+ * 3) It should include the initrd image, since we'll release
