Start the free page optimization when the bulk stage starts. In case the

The optimization avoids sending guest free pages during the bulk stage.
Currently, the optimization is added to precopy only.

I think this is OK, but with the only problem being that postcopy will
break;  we need to disable the mechanism if postcopy is enabled.
