I think I've got that covered. I changed arch_static_call_transform() to
(always) first rewrite the trampoline and then the in-line site.

That way, when early/module crud comes in that still points at the
trampoline, it will jump to the right place.

I've not even compiled yet, but it ought to work ;-)
