    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;


    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()



    Jason Baron (4):
    jump label: Introduce default true branch + API update
    perf: Make use of updated jump label API.
    tracepoints: update to use new jump label API.
    sched: Make use of new jump label API.
