The current value of the early boot static pool size, 1024 is not big
enough for systems with large number of CPUs with timer or/and workqueue
objects selected. As the results, systems have 60+ CPUs with both timer
and workqueue objects enabled could trigger "ODEBUG: Out of memory.
ODEBUG disabled".

Some debug objects are allocated during the early boot. Enabling some
options like timers or workqueue objects may increase the size required
significantly with large number of CPUs. For example,

CONFIG_DEBUG_OBJECTS_TIMERS:
No. CPUs x 2 (worker pool) objects:
start_kernel
  workqueue_init_early
    init_worker_pool
      init_timer_key
        debug_object_init

plus No. CPUs objects (CONFIG_HIGH_RES_TIMERS):
sched_init
  hrtick_rq_init
    hrtimer_init

CONFIG_DEBUG_OBJECTS_WORK:
No. CPUs objects:
vmalloc_init
  __init_work

plus No. CPUs x 6 (workqueue) objects:
workqueue_init_early
  alloc_workqueue
    __alloc_workqueue_key
      alloc_and_link_pwqs
        init_pwq

Also, plus No. CPUs objects:
perf_event_init
  __init_srcu_struct
    init_srcu_struct_fields
      init_srcu_struct_nodes
        __init_work

However, none of the things are actually used or required before
debug_objects_mem_init() is invoked, so just move the call right
before vmalloc_init().

According to tglx,
"the reason why the call is at this place in start_kernel() is
historical. It's because back in the days when debugobjects were added
the memory allocator was enabled way later than today."

Changes since v2:
* Restored an accidentally deleted comment.

since v1:
* Added some comments about interrupts.
