That was the goal :)

Sure, I can re-arrange to have a goto place. Function won't be as small,
and if compiler is not smart enough we might end up with having more
branches than what my current code has.

Sure, I will submit this patch separately from the rest of the project.
In my opinion DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT is the way of the future, so we
should make sure it is working with as many configs as possible.

Thank you,
