mm: remove !NUMA condition from PAGEFLAGS_EXTENDED condition set

CONFIG_PAGEFLAGS_EXTENDED disables a trick to conserve pageflags.
This trick is indended to be enabled when the pressure on page flags
is very high.

The previous condition was:

- depends on 64BIT || SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP || !NUMA || !SPARSEMEM

... however, the sparsemem code already has a way to crowd out the
node number from the pageflags, which means that !NUMA actually
doesn't contribute to hard pageflags exhaustion.

This is required for the new PG_uncached flag to not cause pageflags
exhaustion on x86_32 + PAE + SPARSEMEM + !NUMA.
