SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC V2 3/5] jump_label: if a key has already been initialized, don't nop it out
Hi,

(Sorry for the late reply - I was away for a few days).

The early enable is really nice - it means there are not restrictions on
when jump_label_inc()/dec() can be called which is nice.

comments below.

The only reason I called this at boot-time was that the 'ideal' x86
no-op isn't known until boot time. Thus, in the enabled case we could
skip the the arch_jump_label_transform() call. ie:

if (!enabled)
arch_jump_label_transform(iter, JUMP_LABEL_DISABLE);

hmmm...this is used on module load in smp - so this would introduce a number of
calls to stop_machine() where we didn't have them before. Yes, module
load is a very slow path to begin with, but I think its at least worth
pointing out...

thanks,
