Subject[PATCH v4 12/23] x86/jump-label: Remove support for custom poker
Date
From: Nadav Amit <namit@vmware.com>

There are only two types of poking: early and breakpoint based. The use
of a function pointer to perform poking complicates the code and is
probably inefficient due to the use of indirect branches.
