mm: call page_ext_init() after all struct pages are initialized

When DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT is enabled, just a subset of memmap at
boot are initialized, then the rest are initialized in parallel by
starting one-off "pgdatinitX" kernel thread for each node X.

If page_ext_init is called before it, some pages will not have valid
extension, this may lead the below kernel oops when booting up kernel:

Move page_ext_init() after page_alloc_init_late() to make sure page extension
is setup for all pages.
