Subject[PATCH 0/4][RFC] jump label: introduce default true branch
Hi Peter,

I've introduced a new static_branch_def_true() construct, such that the straight
line path is the true branch, and we patch a jump to get to the false branch.
In order to make jump_label_inc()/dec() work as 'make true'/'make false' with
counting, I've had to update some of the core jump label code. This patchset also
introduces: JUMP_LABEL_INIT_TRUE/FALSE, so that keys should be initialized as:

struct jump_label_key true_key = JUMP_LABEL_INIT_TRUE;

or

struct jump_label_key false_key = JUMP_LABEL_INIT_FALSE;

I think this patch series should address the issues that came up with sched_feat()
implementation.

Thanks,

-Jason
