Boot: Make BootExecutableReader's constructor take a std::vector by v…


This allows avoiding two copies of the executable data being created in
the following scenario (using pseudocode):

  std::vector<u8> data = ...;
  DolReader reader{data};


In this scenario, if we only use the data for passing it to DolReader,
then we have to perform a copy, as the constructor takes the std::vector
as a constant reference -- you cannot move from a constant reference,
and so we copy data into the DolReader, and perform another copy in the
constructor itself when assigning the data to the m_bytes member
variable. However, we can do better.

Now, the following is allowable as well:

  std::vector<u8> data = ...;
  DolReader reader{std::move(data)};


and now we perform no copy at any point in the reader's construction, as
we just std::move the data all the way through to m_bytes.

In the case where we *do* want to keep the executable data around after
constructing the reader, then we can just pass the vector without
std::move-ing it, and we only perform a copy once (as we'll std::move
said copy into m_bytes). Therefore, we get a more flexible interface
resource-wise out of it.
