kexec: fix double-free when failing to relocate the purgatory

If kexec_apply_relocations fails, kexec_load_purgatory frees pi->sechdrs
and pi->purgatory_buf.  This is redundant, because in case of error
kimage_file_prepare_segments calls kimage_file_post_load_cleanup, which
will also free those buffers.

This causes two warnings like the following, one for pi->sechdrs and the
other for pi->purgatory_buf:

  kexec-bzImage64: Loading purgatory failed

Fix by setting pi->sechdrs an pi->purgatory_buf to NULL, since vfree
won't try to free a NULL pointer.
