mm: make CONFIG_DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT depends on !FLATMEM explicitly

Per the suggestion from Michal Hocko [1], DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT
requires some ordering wrt other initialization operations, e.g.
page_ext_init has to happen after the whole memmap is initialized
properly.

For SPARSEMEM this requires to wait for page_alloc_init_late.  Other
memory models (e.g.  flatmem) might have different initialization
layouts (page_ext_init_flatmem).  Currently DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT
depends on MEMORY_HOTPLUG which in turn

	depends on SPARSEMEM || X86_64_ACPI_NUMA
	depends on ARCH_ENABLE_MEMORY_HOTPLUG

and X86_64_ACPI_NUMA depends on NUMA which in turn disable FLATMEM
memory model:

config ARCH_FLATMEM_ENABLE
	def_bool y
	depends on X86_32 && !NUMA

so FLATMEM is ruled out via dependency maze.  Be explicit and disable
FLATMEM for DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT so that we do not reintroduce
subtle initialization bugs
