Fix race between page flip job submission and completion. We invoke
page_flip callback to submit page flip job to GPU first and then set
pflip_status. If GPU fires page flip done irq in between, its handler
won't see the correct pflip_status thus will refuse to notify the job
completion. The job will eventually times out.

Reverse the order of calling page_flip and setting pflip_status to
fix the race.
