A previous commit added resetting KASAN page tags to
kernel_init_free_pages() to avoid false-positives due to accesses to
metadata with the hardware tag-based mode.

That commit did reset page tags before the metadata access, but didn't
restore them after. As the result, KASAN fails to detect bad accesses
to page_alloc allocations on some configurations.

Fix this by recovering the tag after the metadata access.

Fixes: aa1ef4d7b3f6 ("kasan, mm: reset tags when accessing metadata")
