mm, page_alloc: add scheduling point to memmap_init_zone

memmap_init_zone gets a pfn range to initialize and it can be really
large resulting in a soft lockup on non-preemptible kernels

  NMI watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#31 stuck for 23s! [kworker/u642:5:1720]

Fix this by adding a scheduling point once per page block.
