I need to check the whole series, but as far as I can understand from
this patch, this seems not allowing to store the address value in
static pointers. It may break more things, for example _kprobe_blacklist
records the NOKPROBE_SYMBOL() symbol addresses at the build time.

I have some comments here.

I think the definitions of inat_*_tables can be shared in both case.
If __BOOT_COMPRESSED is set, we can define inat_init_tables() as a
initialize function, and if not, it will be just a dummy "do {} while (0)".

BTW, where is the __BOOT_COMPRESSED defined?

This functions should be "inline".
And I can not see the call-site of inat_init_tables() in this patch.

If possible, please include call-site with definition (especially
new init function) so that I can check the init call timing too.

The code itself looks good to me.

Thank you,
