module: put modules in list much earlier.

Prarit's excellent bug report:
> In recent Fedora releases (F17 & F18) some users have reported seeing
> messages similar to
>
> [   15.478160] kvm: Could not allocate 304 bytes percpu data
> [   15.478174] PERCPU: allocation failed, size=304 align=32, alloc from
> reserved chunk failed
>
> during system boot.  In some cases, users have also reported seeing this
> message along with a failed load of other modules.
>
> What is happening is systemd is loading an instance of the kvm module for
> each cpu found (see commit e9bda3b3

).  When the module load occurs the kernel
> currently allocates the modules percpu data area prior to checking to see
> if the module is already loaded or is in the process of being loaded.  If
> the module is already loaded, or finishes load, the module loading code
> releases the current instance's module's percpu data.

Now we have a new state MODULE_STATE_UNFORMED, we can insert the
module into the list (and thus guarantee its uniqueness) before we
allocate the per-cpu region.
