Geert pinpointed this problem to

due to static_branch_likely() in crypto/api.c

Commit adad556efcdd4 ("crypto: api - Fix built-in testing dependency failures")
added "#include <linux/jump_label.h>". That extra include isn't needed because
crypto/internal.h already includes it. Removing it from crypto/api.c
fixes the problem for parisc, but I don't know if that is the correct fix.
Alternatively, linux/completion.h would have to be included from crypto/api.c
before including linux/jump_label.h.
