it is for fixing problem for x86 32/64 merging.
64bit after_bootmem: after bootmem is freed
32bit after_init_bootmem, after we got bootmem initialized.

and previous init_memory_mapping() merging wrongly rename after_init_bootmem to after_bootmem.

also there is after_paging_init, could be merged lated...

but may change bootmem_state to mm_state
