mm/mmu_notifier: allocate mmu_notifier in advance

While allocating mmu_notifier with parameter GFP_KERNEL, swap would start
to work in case of tight available memory.  Eventually, that would lead to
a deadlock while the swap deamon swaps anonymous pages.  It was caused by
commit e0f3c3f7

 ("mm/mmu_notifier: init notifier if necessary").
