Subject[RESEND][PATCH v3 00/17] Add static_call()
[resend; because of the typo in the lkml address]

static_call(), is the idea of static_branch() applied to indirect function
calls. Remove a data load (indirection) by modifying the text.

The inline implementation still relies on objtool to generate the
.static_call_sites section, mostly because this is a natural place for x86_64
and works for both GCC and LLVM. Other architectures can pick other means
if/when they implement the inline patching. The out-of-line (aka. trampoline)
variant doesn't require this.

Patches can also be found here:
