commit 97ce2c88f9ad42e3c60a9beb9fca87abf3639faa breaks MIPS.

The jump-lable initialization does I-Cache flushing after modifying
code.  On MIPS this is done by calling through the function pointer
flush_icache_range().  This function pointer is initialized mm_init().

As things stand, we cannot be calling jump_label_init() until after
mm_init() completes, so we move the call down to satisfy this
