When moving the intialization functions around, I did not remove the
dependency of some helpers on CONFIG_SYSCTL. This led to a large chunk
of code being elided even though it is needed to build hugetlb.o.

Fixes a build failure reported by Alan Cox:

mm/hugetlb.c: In function ‘hugetlb_acct_memory’: mm/hugetlb.c:1507:
error: implicit declaration of function ‘cpuset_mems_nr’
