x86 PAT: remove PFNMAP type on track_pfn_vma_new() error

Impact: fix (harmless) double-free of memtype entries and avoid warning

On track_pfn_vma_new() failure, reset the vm_flags so that there will be
no second cleanup happening when upper level routines call unmap_vmas().

This patch fixes part of the bug reported here:

Specifically the error message:

  X:5010 freeing invalid memtype d0000000-d0101000

Is due to multiple frees on error path, will not happen with the patch below.
