Guess you figured that out yourself...

Anywhere but arm64, x86, and ppc, really.

$ git grep jump_label_init arch
arch/arm64/kernel/smp.c: jump_label_init();
arch/powerpc/lib/feature-fixups.c: jump_label_init();
arch/x86/kernel/setup.c: jump_label_init();

That should work, unless there was a reason to have it that late. It
doesn't look like that was the case, but I may be missing something.
