They will if not selected. If selected and not armed, they will have
zero runtime impact since they piggyback on existing branches
(_TIF_DO_NOTIFY_MASK and near relatives). If selected and armed they'll
cause __switch_to_xtra() on every context switch and do_notity_resume()
on syscall exit until disarmed, but then you've asked for it.
