Subject[PATCH] init: Initialize jump labels before command line option parsing
When a module option, or core kernel argument, toggles a static-key it
requires jump labels to be initialized early. While x86, PowerPC, and
ARM64 arrange for jump_label_init() to be called before parse_args(),
ARM does not.

Kernel command line: rdinit=/sbin/init page_alloc.shuffle=1 panic=-1 console=ttyAMA0,115200 page_alloc.shuffle=1
------------[ cut here ]------------
WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 0 at ./include/linux/jump_label.h:303
static_key_enable(): static key 'page_alloc_shuffle_key+0x0/0x4' used
before call to jump_label_init()

Move the fallback call to jump_label_init() to occur before
parse_args(). The redundant calls to jump_label_init() in other archs
are left intact in case they have static key toggling use cases that are
even earlier than option parsing.
