mm/page_alloc.c: fix build_all_zonelist() where percpu_alloc() is wrongly called under stop_machine_run()

During memory hotplug, build_allzonelists() may be called under
stop_machine_run().  In this function, setup_zone_pageset() is called.
But it's bug because it will do page allocation under stop_machine_run().

Here is a report from Alok Kataria.

  BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/mutex.c:94

  Built 5 zonelists in Node order, mobility grouping on.  Total pages: 289456
  Policy zone: Normal

This patch tries to fix the issue by moving setup_zone_pageset() out from
stop_machine_run(). It's obviously not necessary to be called under
stop_machine_run().
