Hm I wonder if there are other static branch users potentially having
similar problem. Then it would be best to fix this at static branch
level. Any idea, Peter? An inelegant solution would be to have indicate
static_branch_(un)likely() callsites ordering for the patching. I.e.
here we would make sure that read_mems_allowed_begin() callsites are
patched before read_mems_allowed_retry() when enabling the static key,
and the opposite order when disabling the static key.

Maybe we could just return e.g. -1 in read_mems_allowed_begin() when
cpusets are disabled, and test it in read_mems_allowed_retry() before
doing a proper seqcount retry check? Also I think you can still do the
cpusets_enabled() check in read_mems_allowed_retry() before the
was_enabled (or cookie == -1) test?
